Information Literacy Thesaurus

English Abstract: 

"This project is working with the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL) to develop a thesaurus for the field of information literacy based on a keyword list compiled by them, and then to publish it as a linked open thesaurus that adheres to the SKOS standard as recommended by the W3C. It is hoped that this will aid in the search process, helping to improve discoverability of articles published by JIL, and to allow for the possibility of the thesaurus to be utilized by other datasets. As action research combines theory and practice, it is the most suitable research strategy for this project. Self-reflection is helping in the development of best practice strategies with regards to creating domainspecific thesauri suitable for use as linked open data."
