Abstract: In the evolving world of the web, bibliographic resources have gained a reputation for being difficult to discover. Search engines are on a mission to identify things on the web, not just indexing texts about those things. Their initiatives could help solve some of the lack of visibility and discoverability issues in the bibliographic domain—a domain where describing things in text, as opposed to data, is the centuries old, modus operandi. This is where Schema Bib Extend fits, a W3C Community Group focused on establishing a consensus within the bibliographic community around proposals to submit to the WebSchemas Group for extending the Schema.org vocabulary to enhance its capabilities in describing bibliographic resources.
