TIB and L3S are involved in many different regional, national, and European projects. More often than not these projects build or collaborate in developing ontologies, vocabularies, thesauri, and taxonomies. In order to streamline the development, management, maintenance, and publishing the ontologies as well as to foster broader and earlier feedback, TIB has decided to launch a central registry system called Tibonto.
Here, users are able to search for ontologies using their DCAT compatible metadata attributes, tags, organizations, and people who contributed to the development of the ontologies. When as ontology is found, users can navigate to a visual presentation, documentation, and statistics of the designated ontology. They can also get access to the source code on GitHub and reuse it by importing or forking.
