Extended Thesaurus Management with SKOS Collections and SPARQL Lists
The latest release of PoolParty Thesaurus Server comes with some interesting new features: Besides an improved user dialogue for thesaurus alignment, dynamic lists (SPARQL lists) and SKOS Collections have been introduced.
SPARQL lists are lists of concepts or specific data from concepts based on pre-defined SPARQL queries. The SPARQL list framework is very flexible and makes dynamic access from third-party applications to specific lists of concepts of your thesaurus possible: it is easy to add new lists on demand, e.g. to define certain workflow tasks, or to display all concepts of a defined status for further editing.
SKOS Collections (as part of the W3C SKOS standard) are useful where a group of concepts shares something in common, and it is convenient to group them under a common label, or where some concepts can be placed in a meaningful order. See how it works:
