Subject: PRISM outreach
I’m reaching out to you on behalf of the IDEAlliance PRISM Working Group. For those who may not be familiar with it, PRISM (Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata)  is a metadata standard that enables publishers to manage, re-use, and distribute magazine and other serial content. The standard consists of three compliance profiles – XML, RDF/XML, and XMP.
The PRISM Working Group is trying to reach those who are interested in our second compliance profile – RDF/XML, which was listed as a use case in the RDF Primer  produced by the W3C in 2004. While we have strong representation in our working group for our XML and XMP profiles, we currently do not have any representation for the RDF/XML profile. In order to continue supporting this profile we need to find a few individuals who can commit time to our group for the RDF cause. Here are some of the activities we need help with:
· W3C RDF validation for sample PRISM Profile 2 documents
· Providing guidance to prevent PRISM Specification changes from ‘breaking’ aspects of the RDF/XML profile
· General specification review
· Providing input for future development of the RDF/XML profile
If you are interested in providing RDF expertise to the PRISM Working Group or would like to learn more please reply to me at matthew.c.johnson@.... Please include your name, company, position, contact information, and whether you are a current PRISM user.
