  2008-06-09: The Semantic Web Deployment Working Group has
  published a Working Draft of SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization
  System Reference. This document defines the Simple Knowledge
  Organization System (SKOS), a common data model for sharing
  and linking knowledge organization systems via the Semantic Web.
  SKOS aims to provide a bridge between different communities of
  practice within the library and information sciences involved in the
  design and application of knowledge organization systems. In
  addition, SKOS aims to provide a bridge between these communities
  and the Semantic Web, by transferring existing models of knowledge
  organization to the Semantic Web technology context, and by providing
  a low-cost migration path for porting existing knowledge organization
  systems to RDF.
