Dear all,

ISO 25964-1, published in 2011, replaced the previous thesaurus standards ISO 2788 and ISO 5964 (both now withdrawn). Members of the Working Group responsible for ISO 25964 have gone on to consider the implications for SKOS users. They have developed a set of linkages between the elements of the ISO 25964 data model and the ones from SKOS [1], SKOS-XL [2], and MADS/RDF [3]. This new "Correspondence between ISO 25964 and SKOS/SKOS-XL models" document can be accessed at [4] and aims at replacing the previous table presented in the SKOS Primer [5].

We therefore suggest to add the following erratum to the SKOS Primer [6]:
Errata for SKOS Primer

- [ISO-Correspondences] (XX Nov 2012)
The 2009 version of the SKOS Primer includes a correspondence table between SKOS and the ISO-2788/5964 thesaurus standards:
This table is made obsolete by the publication of a new thesaurus data model in ISO 25964. Readers of the SKOS Primer can find an updated table, Correspondence between ISO 25964 and SKOS/SKOS-XL models", at
which can be located from http://www.niso.org/schemas/iso25964/ .

We would like to know whether you have comments on such a change, preferably before Nov 19. Please post any comments to the SKOS mailing list, public-esw-thes@w3.org.

Best regards,

Antoine Isaac & ISO 25964 Working Group.
