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.
