Glossary of terms relating to thesauri and other forms of structured vocabulary for information retrieval

A glossary drawn up by Leonard Will along with Stella Dextre Clarke, Alan Gilchrist and Ron Davies when working on the British Standard for thesaurus construction, BS8723. BS8723 has now been withdrawn and Leonard made some changes while working on its replacement, BS ISO 25964. Thanks again to the Willpower Information webpages.

ISKOMedia - repository of past ISKO UK events' outputs 2007-2018

Work on the migration of ISKOmedia to the open-source repository Zenodo has resumed with a new team in place. As a pilot we are preparing the migration of the 2009 conference, paying particular attention to the controlled/structured vocabulary which will underlie the metadata. Once the pilot is evaluated, we'll proceed with subsequent events.

Meanwhile, material of past events since October 2018 is available here.
