@ksteimel I predict you will love Montréal. You're arriving at a great time to experience the city! I've been here for eight months and am on my way back to pack up and move back home this week.

Long way of saying: my objective is to develop methods for assessing the quality of linked bibliographic data (specifically BIBFRAME)… but that could change :)
