General required reading

Charter, Charter and Charter! Especially sections 2 (scope), 3 (deliverables) and 4 (dependencies). See http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/charter

Agenda Saturday, 23 October

Use case discussion 9:00-10:30 + 11:00-12:30

Aim (charter): A use-case document that describes a number of real-world use cases, case studies, outreach and dissemination initiatives targeted to the library community and related sectors.

Session activities: Looking at individual use cases (or clusters), discussing requirements (technical, organizational) raised by these use cases. In preparation for the meeting, members of the XG should feel free to propose candidate requirements on the candidate requirements page, which we would discuss in this session.

Background reading:

Vocabularies 14:00-15:30 + 16:00-17:30

Aim (charter): Identifying relevant data models, vocabularies and ontologies and ways to build or improve interoperability among them

Cf. 2nd deliverable on charter: "A document that describes relevant technology pieces, including vocabularies and ontologies (e.g., SKOS), with the intended goal to identify extension or interoperability requirements, and help determine what other standards [vocabularies] may be needed."

Session activities: Looking of vocabularies in use cases and looking at them one by one. List classes of resources needed for use cases. Determine whether the current use cases mention them, whether the existing vocabularies cover their description adequately (if not, what are the gaps and what clarification are needed?), whether they are specified appropriately (expression of constraints, etc) and whether there is a need for alignments between them. Trying to generalise and about the issues related to these vocabularies in the way that Gordon has done in the piece that he posted.

Required reading: FRBR, RDA... http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Library_standards_and_linked_data

Background reading:

Discussion on deliverables 17:30-18:30

  • What can we achieve as deliverables before the charter runs out?
  • What could potential follow-on actions be recommended?

Required reading: Scope and deliverables sections of the charter.

Background info: XGs (see closed XGs and active XGs) publish one single XG report which consists very often of an account on participants and group activities, a listing of use cases & cases studies. Often the report features recommendation for future work and sometimes it features some form of technology or vocabulary/model state-of-the-art. Among the XGs that produced or aim at producing more than one single report:

Agenda Sunday, 24 October

Use cases & Topics 9:00-10:30 + 11:00-12:30

Cf. 2nd deliverable on charter: "A document that describes relevant technology pieces, including vocabularies and ontologies (e.g., SKOS), with the intended goal to identify extension or interoperability requirements, and help determine what other standards may be needed."

Session activities: Take a broader look at the topic list. Look at the topics that do not fall into a use case.
