Hello,

Here is an answer to the call, concerning vocabularies stored in the service of [1]

== Vocabulary Implementations ==
* vocabulary title(s) (e.g. Library of Congress Subject Headings)

  * Iconclass
  * Rameau   * Glass Reference Collection vocabulary
  * Brinkman keywords
  * Wordnet (nouns)
  * SWD
  * Mandragore vocabulary
  * NBD/Biblion thesaurus
  * GOO thesaurus
  * Regio Thesaurus KB
  * GTAA thesaurus   * SVCN

* name of person and/or organisation responsible for the
 implementation

Antoine Isaac, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
(I'm just the main contact--detailed information on the institutional context of
the various vocabularies can be found at [1])

* a list of the SKOS constructs used (e.g. skos:Concept,
 skos:ConceptScheme, skos:inScheme, skos:broader, skos:prefLabel,
 skos:closeMatch ... etc.)

Used explicity in the SKOS representation of the vocabularies (see the
statistics at [2]):
Concept, inScheme, ConceptScheme, hasTopConcept, prefLabel, altLabel,
hiddenLabel, broader, narrower, related, note, scopeNote, definition, example,
historyNote, editorialNote, changeNote, relatedMatch, notation.

Used in the representation of cross-vocabulary alignments stored in the service
(not listed on [2])
exactMatch, closeMatch, broadMatch, narrowMatch

* URL(s) where the published SKOS data may be obtained, if the data
 are publicly available

The content of the vocabulary service may be explored from [3]. Note that a
large number of vocabularies are only privately available (please contact us if
you want to arrange for a login/password).

We would also welcome any further information you care to provide,
however this is *not mandatory*. For example, we would be interested
to know the scope and size of the vocabulary, what it is primarily
used for, in what languages the vocabulary is provided, any other URLs
describing the vocabulary or providing further information.

See the statistics at [2] for the size of the vocabularies.
Here is a qualitative one-liner for each vocabulary:

  * Iconclass: expert vocabulary for iconographical description. Labels in
English/French/German; Italian, Finish and Norwegian are available but not
SKOSified.
  * Rameau: general subject vocabulary used to describe books at French National
Library (bnF). Labels mostly in French, though labels in many other languages
are present in small amounts
  * Glass Reference Collection vocabulary: expert vocabulary to describe an
archeological glass collection. In Dutch.
  * Brinkman keywords: general subject vocabulary used to describe books at
Dutch National Library (KB). In Dutch.
  * Wordnet (nouns): general semantic network. In English.
  * SWD: general subject vocabulary used to describe books at German National
Library (KB). In German.
  * Mandragore vocabulary: expert vocabulary for iconographical description of
medieval manuscripts. In French.   * NBD/Biblion thesaurus: general subject
vocabulary used to describe books in Dutch public libraries. In Dutch.
  * GOO thesaurus: general subject vocabulary used to describe books at Dutch
National Library (KB) and university libraries. In Dutch and English.
  * Regio Thesaurus KB: place name vocabulary used at the Dutch National Library
(KB). In Dutch.
  * GTAA thesaurus: general subject vocabulary used to describe video materia at
Dutch National Audiviovisual Archive (Beeld en Geluid). In Dutch.
  * SVCN vocabulary: expert vocabulary to describe ethnographical collections.
In Dutch.

Cheers,

Antoine
