Abstract [en]

The need for vocabularies such as ontologies, classification schemes and thesauri for information discovery and the Semantic Web has been well recognized and established. Due to a large number of different vocabularies, related services, and a variety of potential applications and contexts, the need has appeared for terminology registries.

A terminology registry lists, describes, identifies and points to sets of vocabularies available for use in information systems and services. It can cover free and publicly available, fee-based and restricted, or organisation-internal vocabularies. The registry allows discovery of suitable schemes for information or, potentially, use, by exposing rich metadata about them for navigation and retrieval. Terminology registries can hold vocabulary level information only, or comprise the member terms, concepts and relationships as well, and also list services based on terminology such as automatic classification, term expansion, disambiguation, translation, semantic reasoning. Registries should, if used as a digital infrastructure service, make their content available for both comfortable human inspection and for machine-to-machine (m2m) access

There are several registries in its basic form, i.e., only listing vocabularies, such as freely available HILT’s (HILT) or commercial Taxonomy Warehouse’s (Taxonomy Warehouse). In the United States, National Science Digital Library Metadata Registry (NSDL Registry) started being developed to provide “services to developers and consumers of controlled vocabularies and is one of the first production deployments of the RDF-based Semantic Web Community's Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)”.

This study was initiated by UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and involves two partners, UKOLN, and University of Glamorgan. Its purpose is to analyse issues related to the potential delivery of a terminology registry as a shared infrastructure service within the UK’s further and higher education’s information environment. It will consider how a registry might support development of terminology and other services within the context of a services-oriented environment.
