The posting above is exactly the approach I am advocating. As long as the linked data is not incorrect but merely not best practice, then implement linked data with what one has in hand. This will accomplish two goals: 1) make cultural heritage institution metadata more widely available, and 2) provide practice for the technologist for implementation. Once the data is available, then enhance it and repeat the process. It is a never-ending thing. —Eric Morgan
