ISO 4791-1:1985 Laboratory Apparatus Vocabulary

"This part of ISO 4791 lists the names of items of laboratory apparatus, made essentially from glass, porcelain or vitreous silica, together with items of equipment, made from other materials, which are commonly used in association with such apparatus. A vocabulary of technical terms, with their definitions and applicable to the manufacture, adjustment and use of such laboratory apparatus, will be issued as Part 2. The purpose of the vocabulary is to provide an aid to translators and readers of scientific literature.

ISO 5127 Information and Documentation Vocabulary

This International Standard is intended to facilitate international communication in the field of information and documentation. It presents terms and definitions of selected concepts relevant to the field and identifies relations between the entries. It contains around 2.000 definitions and a bibliography of 353 titles including other ISO standards.

MedDRA

"In the late 1990s, the International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) developed MedDRA, a rich and highly specific standardised medical terminology to facilitate sharing of regulatory information internationally for medical products used by humans. ICH’s powerful tool, MedDRA is available to all for use in the registration, documentation and safety monitoring of medical products both before and after a product has been authorised for sale.

CIMCIM Terminology

"All of us are frequently confronted with the problem of identifying musical instruments and their components correctly, whether in the process of defining a part that has been damaged or restored, or trying to transmit our knowledge to school children, students or our academic colleagues. Occasionally this task is a distinct challenge due to the lack of a standardized terminology in the field of organology.

BIBFRAME

"The BIBFRAME Model is a conceptual/practical model that balances the needs of those recording detailed bibliographic description, the needs of those describing other cultural materials, and those who do not require such a detailed level of description. There are four high-level classes, or entitities, in the BIBFRAME Model: BIBFRAME Work; BIBFRAME Instance; BIBFRAME Authority; BIBFRAME Annotation.

IEEE Standard for Learning Object Metadata

"This is a multi-part standard that specifies learning object metadata. This part specifies a conceptual data schema that defines the structure of a metadata instance for a learning object. For this standard, a learning object is defined as any entity - digital or non-digital - that may be used for learning, education, or training. For this standard, a metadata instance for a learning object describes relevant characteristics of the learning object to which it applies.

Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata

"PRISM Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata defines an XML/RDF metadata vocabulary for managing, aggregating, post-processing, multi-purposing and aggregating magazine, news, catalog, book, and mainstream journal content. PRISM recommends the use of certain existing standards, such as XML, RDF, the Dublin Core, and various ISO specifications for locations, languages, and date/time formats.
