"Libraries begin to realize that they are not alone"

I just read a short report from the   Semantic Web and Digital Libraries (ICSD 2007)  by Ivan Herman.

It was a little to far for me to go; even though the organizers "invited" me to do presentation on JeromeDL. I was wondering about the quality of this event, and eventually decided together with more senior people from DERI that we should wait and see.

I hope there will be a follow up, and then we will surely go - by all means - JeromeDL is the Semantic Digital Library, and my tutorial on Semantic Digital Libraries (and soon the book) are just yet another activities that should support this movement.
It is nice to hear that DL community finally acknowledged our presence, however, I am still not sure if we are ready for that. My cooperation with this community proved that this is not an easy task, but I have learned and I am still learning a lot from them. I guess, until we will be able to understand what has been achieved so far, and address problems of the DL community, we are sentenced for more misunderstanding.
