Nomenclature | Communities
"Robert G. Chenhall’s nomenclature for classifying man-made objects is the standard cataloging tool for thousands of museums and historical organizations across the United States and Canada. Nomenclature’s lexicon of object names, arranged hierarchically within functionally defined categories, has become a de facto standard within the community of history museums in North America."

Descriptive Metadata for Web Archiving
"OCLC Research established the Web Archiving Metadata Working Group (WAM) to develop recommendations for descriptive metadata. Their approach is tailored to the unique characteristics of archived websites, with an eye to helping institutions improve the consistency and efficiency of their metadata practices in this emerging area. The result of this collaboration is three publications that cover recommendations to help institutions improve the consistency and efficiency of their metadata practices, a literature review of user needs, and a review of web harvesting tools."

Overview (Bibliographic Framework Initiative Technical Site - BIBFRAME.ORG)
"This technical site for the Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME.ORG) serves as the official repository for the vocabulary, tools and shared code in support of BIBFRAME. Led by the Library of Congress, this community effort represents the beginning of a transition from the MARC 21 communication format to a new RDF-based data model, embracing Linked Data practices in support of sharing and publishing metadata."

Parallel Lines
"So take a look at the Open Metadata Registry (formerly the NSDL Registry) if you’re developing semantic schema for data or other open research. Many of the standards listed in the element sets have decriptive frameworks or other structures you can apply to research data collection, images, spectra, or lab notebook data. Don’t say no one told you." Annotated link

Report on the 2009 Joint CENDI/NKOS Workshop - Knowledge Organization Systems: Managing to the Future
The 2009 CENDI/NKOS Workshop, "Knowledge Organization Systems: Managing to the Future", was held at the National Agricultural Library at Beltsville, Maryland, on October 22, 2009. It was the ninth workshop on Networked Knowledge Organization Systems/Services sponsored by the NKOS group in the U.S. since 1998. NKOS is a community of over 300 practitioners from more than 10 countries who are interested in the use of knowledge organization systems (e.g., classifications, gazetteers, lexical databases, ontologies, taxonomies, thesauri, etc.) in networked environments.

The Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies
The OBO Foundry is a collaborative experiment involving developers of science-based ontologies who are establishing a set of principles for ontology development with the goal of creating a suite of orthogonal interoperable reference ontologies in the biomedical domain. The groups developing ontologies who have expressed an interest in this goal are listed below, followed by other relevant efforts in this domain.

A Metadata Best Practice for a Scientific Data Repository - Journal of Library Metadata
Digital data repositories ought to support immediate operational needs and long-term project goals. This paper presents the Dryad repository's metadata best practice balancing of these two needs. The paper reviews background work exploring the meaning of science, characterizing data, and highlighting data curation metadata challenges. The Dryad repository is introduced, and the initiative's metadata best practice and underlying rationales are described. Dryad's metadata approach includes two prongs: one addressing the long-term goal to align with the Semantic Web via a metadata application profile; and another addressing the immediate need to make content available in DSpace via an extensible markup language (XML) schema. The conclusion summarizes limitations and advantages of the two prongs underlying Dryad's metadata effort.
