They are on my list of folks I want to consult with as part of Structured Commons -- definitely want to understand better how we could use their environment to describe more of our content (and what they need from that content). Does anyone have connections? 


They are at Oxford, Adler Museum, U. of Portsmouth in the UK, and University of Minnesota.
