The Semantic Web has been variously described as an extension of the World Wide Web that enables people to share content beyond the boundaries of applications and websites, [World Wide Web Consortium s] vision of the Web of linked data, a means to help computers read and use the Web, and as a web that describes the relationships between things.

Countless other descriptions exist, but what do any mean to librarians? What practical application does the Semantic Web hold for librarians not working at the national library or library system levels? If a librarian wants to become involved in the Semantic Web movement and enter into its discourse, where does she begin?

To answer these questions, the focus of this Synthesis Lecture is three-fold: 1) provide an overview of the W3C Semantic Web standard, the components that comprise its framework, its promise and drawbacks- 2) answer the question of just what the Semantic Web means to librarians by surveying public, academic, and special librarians and learn in which, if any, Semantic Web projects they are involved- and 3) provide overviews of Semantic Web activities undertaken by such organizations as the Library of Congress (LoC), the Library Information Technology Association (LITA), and, related, the American Society for Information Science (ASIS), among others.
