Controlled vocabularies and ontologies as useful helpers - practical examples and recommendations

This course is held in the Czech language.

Annotation: The third in a series of lectures on topics in the field of knowledge organization. While the first provided a general introduction and the second dealt with the theoretical and methodological aspects of controlled vocabularies and ontologies, the current entry is devoted to examples of concrete solutions. Since knowledge organization systems are structurally and functionally integral parts of the information system, the individual examples are set in the context of metadata creation and management, information object processing, and methods for retrieving and filtering records. Individual micro-case studies are devoted to specific issues of working with controlled vocabularies and ontologies related to the creation, selection, structure, semantics, syntax, granularity, formats, connectivity, management and use of these systems.

Benefits for the attendees: Participants will get comprehensive practical skills for using controlled vocabularies and ontologies in information systems, will be able to assess problematic aspects of specific solutions, and will be able to choose the most appropriate way to implement and work with these systems.

Level:  beginner
