More data and information is being created than ever before. Ontologies, formal representations of knowledge with rich semantic relationships, have become increasingly important in the context of todays information overload and data deluge. The publishing and sharing of explicit explanations for a wide variety of concepts, in a machine readable format, has the power to both improve information retrieval and discover new knowledge. Information professionals are key contributors to the development of new, and increasingly useful, ontologies.

Review:

As a relative novice, I was still able to come away from this book with a good idea of how exactly the linked data models are made manifest. I would recommend this book for experienced information professionals interested in concrete examples of an often nebulous subject. -- Eric Brownell * Technical Services Quarterly * The generous provision of definitions, insights on the development of contemporary tools, and identification of theoretical concerns provide a sound introduction ... This guide has potential as an textbook for those focusing on library information systems careers. -- Betty J. Glass * Library Journal * Practical Ontologies for Information Professionals offers insight into the evolution of classification of digital data and knowledge. This book will be useful to archivists, domain experts, LIS students, and library and information professionals.Recommended. -- ARBA " ... an impressive and comprehensive study. Of special note are the chapters on 'Ontologies and Information Professions'; 'Alternative Semantic Visions'; and 'Ontological Documentation'. Impressively well written, organized, and presented, "Practical Ontologies for Information Professionals" will prove to be an enduringly valued and appreciated addition to professional, community, and academic library Information Science reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists." -- Michael J. Carson * Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Bookwatch *
