yesterday I published a post called "Discovery silos vs. the open web"
on openbiblio.net, see .
The developments described in the post might be a good reason for this
group to take some action. I see the opportunity for our group to get
libraries to push towards open metadata from content providers.
My proposal: We develop something like Igelu's proposed clause for
contracts between libraries and content providers with the difference
that our proposed clause should enable the publication of metadata as
open data. (Actually, I already proposed something like this for the
last virtual meeting, see .)
What do you think?
All the best
