Publication Abstract

The Semantic Web promises powerful new functionality for bibliographic databases by combining bibliographic information with knowledge about the world. However, the kinds ofrepresentation that are possible in Semantic Web languages are not widely understood in the LIS community. In particular, the W3C Semantic Web ontology languages RDFS and OWL are not suciently expressive to deliver the full rangeof inferences anticipated for bibliographic applications, and will require formalized rules from other speci fications.
