Thesaurus zur Inhaltserschließung

"Der Thesaurus zur Inhaltserschließung wurde im Sommersemester 2004 am Institut für Bibliothekswissenschaft an der Humboldt Universität zu Berlin von den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern des Hauptseminars 'Terminologieproblematik beim Aufbau von Thesauri' unter der Leitung von Frau Dr. Inge Lindtner erstellt. Er ist sowohl als Webversion auf der Homepage des Instituts als auch gedruckt in der Institutsbibliothek verfügbar.

FIBO Vocabulary

"The FIBO vocabulary is distributed using the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS). (...) The FIBO Vocabulary uses SKOS to provide a machine-readable dictionary of the FIBO terminology. (...) The FIBO Vocabulary is distributed as a machine-readable file in which the FIBO class hierarchy is rendered as a tree strucutre of broader and narrower terms. Properties in FIBO appear as properties in the FIBO vocabulary. Logical restrictions relating pairs of FIBO classes are rendered as simple relationships between corresponding concepts in FIBO Vocabulary.

"L’ontologia Cultural-ON, realizzata nell’ambito di una Convenzione tra il MIBACT e l’Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologie della Cognizione del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (ISTC-CNR), ha lo scopo di modellare i dati che caratterizzano gli istituti e i luoghi della cultura, come ad esempio i dati sugli enti o sulle persone che hanno un determinato ruolo sugli istituti e luoghi della cultura, le sedi fisiche dei luoghi, i contatti, eventuali materiali multimediali che descrivono un istituto e luogo della cultura e ogni altra informazione utile al pubblico per poter accedere all’istituto

"The ontology aims at modelling the data on cultural institutes or sites such as data regarding the agents that play a specific role on cultural institutes or sites, the sites themselves, the contact points, all multimedia files which describe the cultural institute or site and any other information useful to the public in order to access the institute or site. Moreover, the ontology represents events that can take place in specific cultural institutes or sites. The following figure illustrates some of the core elements of the ontology.

Information Literacy Thesaurus

"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.

Thesaurus Onroerend Erfgoed Soorten

"Een thesaurus is een, meestal hiërarchische, woordenlijst die wordt gebruikt om terminologie te standaardiseren. Onze thesauri worden gebruikt om informatie te helpen indexeren en terugvinden in onze databanken. (...) We stellen onze thesauri samen met een bijzondere aandacht voor onze lokale Vlaamse situatie, zonder internationale thesauri zoals de Art & Architecture Thesaurus en de thesauri van Historic England uit het oog te verliezen."

"A thesaurus is a mostly hierarchical list of words used to standardize terminology. Our thesauri are used to index and find information in our databases. (...) We construct our thesauri with special attention to our local Flemish situation, but without losing sight of international thesauri such as the Art & Architecture Thesaurus and the thesauri of Historic England."
