This seminar marks five years of progress in library linked data since the
“London Meeting” of 2007 London Meeting of 31 April/1 May 2007 between DCMI
and Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA stimulated
significant development of Semantic Web representations of the major
international bibliographic metadata models, including IFLA’s Functional
Requirements family and the International Standard Bibliographic
Description (ISBD), and MARC as well as RDA itself. Attention is now
beginning to focus on the management and sustainability of this activity,
and the development of high-level semantic and data structures to support
library applications.
