This resource contains a set of guidelines on how to reuse other vocabularies (i.e., how one's vocabulary should link to other vocabularies). Reuse is not only related to publication, but also to the design of a vocabulary. Discusses the relative benefits of either importing another vocabulary into one's own vocabulary, or extending only those properties and classes that one is going to reuse, without adding all of the terms of the other vocabulary. Includes a short list of resources for finding RDF vocabularies for reuse.
