Thank you very much for pointing out LibraryCloud led by David Weinberger. I also commented on his ShelfLite and Findability Systems in his blog "Physical libraries in digital world" available from
http://www.everythingismiscellaneous.com/2011/11/22/physical-libraries-in-a-digital-world/#comments

As far as I am concerned not only the holdings data, but also item level data shall be made sharable in Findability systems. The key point is to have enough resources and metrics representing mission critical library operations of physical libraries in the systems. I listed criteria to be considered for that perfect shelf in Findability systems. Thanks!

> Lukas, I just wanted to reply that I do think your post points out some very important considerations about library data on the web. It may, however, be too far advanced of most of today's thinking to get much discussion. The key question that you address is how we will get library *holdings* data integrated into the semantic web. Without that, masses of bibliographic data in linked data format do not make libraries visible.

And I agree that what libraries have to offer *uniquely* is the link to their services, not a mass of bibliographic data, much of which will be redundant with data already provided by Amazon, Google, and others.

I'm thinking of the W3C LLD group in particular. It is probably the case that the bibframe activity will be primarily occupied with defining bibliographic data and how that data works within library systems, and may not have time to focus on integrating holdings with existing bibliographic data on the web.
