LoC and VIAF are vocabularies, so I doubt there are projects built on them other than for normalization or coreferencing

they aren’t vocabs? They are linked data representations of people/subjects/etc.

VIAF is a coreferenced library name authority system with very little biographical information. You can get a lot more from wikidata

I'm not sure I understand her question. What is"lightweight" and what is "heavyweight"?

Lightweight = , Nomisma, , . Heavyweight = CIDOC CRM, which is why there aren't many real world examples

not sure what meant by light/heavy weight. Your interpretation is (I think?) about complexity of model/ontology?

(she is the cat's mother!) Light/heavy is work in progress idea for LOD that's easier or harder to build into GLAM work

Anything more complex than simplistic dbpedia-style assertions presumably counts as 'heavy'?

I mean innately heavy because they contain more than just a set of simple properties

I think that we need 'just enough' structure for effective . For many cultural heritage contexts, that will mean events (2+ levels).

not sure if the issue with CIDOC-CRM is complex model or other aspects like scope & property names

I don't think they've done an amazing job on selling the problems it'll solve for orgs or researchers

Agree, but it really depends on the needs of the audience. CRM can be useful for really sophisticated query of domain specific data

No! Surely wiring diagrams which look like someone has thrown spaghetti at a street map are just the thing to secure strategic buy-in?

but the barriers are perhaps too high for a generalized model for aggregation (Europeana/DPLA examples of "just enough")

You can't get strategic buy-in without useful interfaces and visualizations. Maps showing distribution are an easy win
