Welcome to the 1 st Semantic Web SIG open session IFLA 77 th WLIC August 2011
Library Linked Data Incubator group report Semantic Web SIG meeting BERMES, Emmanuelle Centre G. Pompidou Paris, France IFLA 77 th WLIC August 2011
Linked Data Principles Use URIs as names for things Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names Provide useful information using standards (RDF, SPARQL) Create links with other datasets Linked Data principles from Sir Tim Berners-Lee
To help increase global interoperability of library data on the Web, by bringing together people involved in Semantic Web activities — focusing on Linked Data — in the library community and beyond, building on existing initiatives , and identifying collaboration tracks for the future . http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/charter

The charter explains that the mission of the group is focused on interoperability for library data. Limited to library because specific and complex enough, but should obviously reach out to other communities in the end (in particular LAM). Expected deliverables : state of the art report, use cases, requirements, technology pieces.
What's an incubator group ? It's a short lived, light weight structure intended to identify future working tracks. The incubator is here to ask questions, not answer.
Lot of different people. Meet mainly on teleconferences, IRL only once (DC conference last october in Pittsburgh).
The use case effort : show huge and very diverse interest for LD in the community. Difficult to extract something at a global level -> creation of clusters. Shows the benefits of LD to users (patrons but also librarians, developers, etc.)
