As Chair of the Schema Bib Extend W3C Community Group, Richard has been in an ideal place to watch as a general purpose vocabulary was applied to traditionally richly described resources such as books, articles and library holdings.
From the setting up of a community to the very different approach to that of creating a domain specific vocabulary; from the compromises that the generic imposes to the potential for broad consumption - it has been an interesting journey. He will share some of the experiences and lessons learned, and discuss the potential for significant benefits by applying the results in and beyond the domain of libraries.
