Big Meeting at RDA tomorrow

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow the RDA Vocabulary and Semantic Services Interest Group will meet from 9:00 to 10:30 AM CET (GMT+1, I believe), in B95 (second floor, between the 2 straight staircases).

Re: [rda-metadata-ig][domain-repositories-ig][vocabulary_services] methods for auto-generating structured metadata

I refer the group to the related work of the W3C Data Exchange Working
Group. [1] I think the move towards being able to explicitly define
profiles of such metadata provides useful opportunities to control the
quality and interoperability of such metadata.
This group has a Use Case and Requirements document First Public Working
Draft out for comment. Please engage :-)
