Sophistication of Library Resource Description Structures

This is a provacitive statement by Ronald J. Murray writing with Barbara Tillett in their paper, “Cataloging Theory in Search of Graph Theory and Other Ivory Towers“:

“… library resource description structures — when teased out of their book and card and digital catalog implementations and treated as graphs — are arguably more sophisticated than those being explored in the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Library Linked Data initiative.”

Murray explores this idea in a series of presentation slides he’s posted on SlideShare.
