  • 12. Online controlled vocabularies ● What are they? ○ A collection of concepts for populating a given metadata field ○ Ensure consistent spellings & syntax ○ Prevent metadata misunderstandings ○ Maintain a static relationship between metadata fields and the real world ○ Concepts from different controlled vocabularies may be connected using simple mapping relationships
