Uniform description and access to Knowledge Organization Systems with BARTOC and JSKOS
knowledge organization systems
The Basel Register of Thesauri, Ontologies & Classifications (BARTOC) provides information about a large number of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) such as classifications, thesauri, authority files etc. To further improve availability and usefulness of both the description and content of KOS, they are mapped to the uniform JSKOS data format being developed in project coli-conc. Specification of a corresponding JSKOS-API will allow users to directly browse and search in KOS from any place.
