"Culture Grid Vocabulary Bank is a joint venture between Collections Trust and Knowledge Integration. The bank enables users to browse, search and download a wide range of controlled vocabularies, thesauri and terminologies. There is an alerting function which provides details of changes to vocabularies in RSS and ATOM formats and a machine to machine interface accessible via a REST API.<br />
Cultural Sector organisations that wish to have their vocabularies hosted on the Culture Grid Vocabulary Bank should contact Collections Trust in the first instance.<br />
In addition to the hosting of vocabularies, we can also provide a fully featured editor which can be used to create and edit vocabularies. This can be used as a stand alone tool or be tightly integrated with Culture Grid Vocabulary Bank.<br />
The Vocabulary Bank is designed to complement the core Culture Grid service, giving organisations the opportunity of using the APIs to provide a crosswalk between vocabularies used within the grid metadata and other controlled vocabularies in a seamless manner."
