Using a Controlled Vocabulary for Managing a Digital Library Platform
Presented June 23 at 2010 Semantic Technology Conference
The LCV captures:
- Preferred and alternate terminology
- Inter-term relationships
- Term hierarchy
- Linkage to other semantic information
The initial version of the LCV (now shipping in the Logos digital library platform) comprises some 11,000 terms and continues to grow as more reference works are added. It also provides the backbone of http://topics.logos.com, a website for user contributions to terminology and content.
This session will describe the building of the LCV, how we’re using it now, and how we plan to use and extend it in the future.
