This PowerPoint presentation explains the role which concepts from thesauri and taxonomies play in Linked Data (especially as they relate to SKOS). It briefly discusses ontologies in general before moving on to RDF Schema. Examples are given of how to defines classes of resources and the relations that connect them using RDFS. Focuses on defining hierarchical relations in support of inference (i.e., formally stating that membership in a narrower class automatically implies membership in a broader class).

Keywords: RDF Schema, Taxonomy, Thesaurus, Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)
