Journal of Library Metadata Special Issue 
 
Controlled Vocabularies and the Semantic Web 
 
Ranging from large national libraries to small and medium-sized institutions, 
many cultural heritage organizations, including libraries, archives, and 
museums, have been working with controlled vocabularies in linked data and 
semantic web contexts. Such work has included transforming existing 
vocabularies, thesauri, subject heading schemes, authority files, term and code 
lists into SKOS and other machine-consumable linked data formats. 
  
This special issue of the Journal of Library Metadata welcomes articles from a 
wide variety of types and sizes of organizations on a wide range of topics 
related to controlled vocabularies, ontologies, and models for linked data and 
semantic web deployment, whether theoretical, experimental, or actual. 
  
Topics include, but are not restricted to the following: 
Converting existing vocabularies into SKOS and/or other linked data formats. 
Publishing local vocabularies as linked data in online repositories such as the 
Open Metadata Registry. 
Development or use of special tools, platforms and interfaces that facilitate 
the creation and deployment of vocabularies as linked data. 
Working with Linked Data / Semantic Web W3C standards such as RDF, RDFS, SKOS, 
and OWL. 
Work with the BIBFRAME, Europeana, DPLA, CIDOC-CRM, or other linked data / 
semantic web models, frameworks, and ontologies. 
Challenges in transforming existing vocabularies and models into linked data 
and semantic web vocabularies and models.
