  9. 9. Extension of the ontology: where? VIVOCamp • VIVO ontology editor?  Issues of future compatibility with new versions of the VIVO ontology • Ontology extension published independently? • If published independently, “domain-specific” or “scope-specific” ontology extensions (e.g. for libraries) can be re-used by VIVO instances with the same needs • Extensions that are general enough could be considered for inclusion in the core or as a general-use extension package  We created an ontology extension called “agrivivo” and published it
  10. 10. Extension of the ontology VIVOCamp We used an RDF vocabulary editing tool called Neologism (a Drupal distribution)
  11. 11. Subset of organization classes in AgriVIVO VIVOCamp Besides extending the ontology with necessary new classes, we decided not to use some of the existing VIVO classes. This is sort of an “Application Profile” with selected VIVO classes and AgriVIVO classes that are suitable for the domain of agriculture.
