New Webinar@AIMS: "Integrating controlled vocabularies in information management systems : the new ontology plug-in", 4th July

The AIMS AOD Group of Interest is pleased to announce the "Integrating controlled vocabularies in information management systems : the new ontology plug-in" Webinar. 

About the webinar

The Webinar will introduce the new ontology plug-in developed in the context of the AIMS Community, how it works and the usage possibilities. It was created within the context of AgriOcean DSpace, however it is an independent plug-in and can be used in any other applications and information management systems.

The ontology plug-in searches multiple thesauri and ontologies simultaneously by using a web service broker (e.g. AGROVOC, ASFA, Plant Ontology, NERC-C19 ontology, and OceanExpert). It delivers as output a list of selected concepts, where each concept has a URI (or unique ID), a preferred label with optional language definition and the ontology from which the concepts has been selected. The application uses JAVA, Javascript and JQuery. As it is open software, developers are invited to reuse, enrich and enhance the existing source code.

We invite the participants of the webinar to give their view how thesauri and ontologies can be used in repositories and other types of information management systems and how the ontology plug-in can be further developed.
