Hello,

to link vocabularies or KOS such as lexvo or eurovoc to your datasets, you
might want to check one of the document annotation voc:
 - annotea, general annotation of resources
http://www.w3.org/2000/10/annotation-ns#
 - tags2con, which links "tags" to documents and to conceptual their
meaning (for instance in lexvo or eurovoc)
http://disi.unitn.it/~knowdive/dataset/delicious/
 - the tag ontology, which is less "semantic" as it links tags to resources
but doesn't provide a simple way to link the tag strings to concepts:
