SKOS for an Integrated Vocabulary Structure (poster)


Published on

A pilot study in which a variety of selected CCT classes and mapped thesaurus entries are encoded with SKOS. Two models of encoding an integrated KOS vocabulary are compared. Presented at DC2008, International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications, Berlin, 2008-Sept. 22-26.
