With all of the flurry of activity around here, I forgot to mention* that the summary report from our terminologies meeting in September are now available. (G√ľnter blogged about the meeting.) We’ve also made our terminologies “Strawman” document available. We developed the Strawman to give examples of different ways a terminologies service could be developed, and includes some use cases that we hoped would be illustrative. It’s far from a perfect document, but it provided great fodder for discussion, and we include it with the summary report to give the whole picture.
G√ľnter and I are greatly assisted in this effort by Diane Vizine-Goetz and Andy Houghton from OCLC Research. We are talking to the California Digital Library, Indiana University, and Oregon State University about how we can move forward with this project.
*And then, to make matters worse, I left this posting in “draft” for about a week and forgot that I hadn’t published it! Too many postings, they are all blurring together.Related posts:
