Target Audience: Librarians and information professionals interested in the semantic web
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify basic concepts about the semantic web and how SKOS works within it.
2. Participants will be able to define the terms: vocabulary integration, RDF, and OWL.

The reality of the semantic web is quickly approaching! An increasing amount of attention is being given to The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS). SKOS is a way of developing standards for knowledge organization systems (i.e., classification schemes, like Library of Congress Classification Schemes; subject headings; and thesauri) that can be used in the semantic web. This presentation will give an introduction to the main concepts related to SKOS and discuss how SKOS is relevant to the law library environment. Speakers will also introduce a SKOS-based project called HIVE (Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering), an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded open-source vocabulary server project that is meant to improve access to interdisciplinary collections.
