    It’s worth noting that the Evergreen open source library system (http://evergreen-ils.org) has been publishing simple linked data using the schema.org vocabulary since the Evergreen 2.2 release in June, 2012 – meaning that by now, most libraries that use Evergreen are by default offering linked data via their public catalogues.

    I’m currently working on enriching the linked data that Evergreen offers, with part of my effort going into the W3C Schema.org Bibliographic Extension Community Group (w3.org/community/schemabibex/). You’re welcome to join, if you’re not already participating!
