Welcome to The Registry!

This is the home page for the Open Metadata Registry (formerly the NSDL Registry).

The Metadata Registry provides services to developers and consumers of controlled vocabularies and is one of the first production deployments of the RDF-based Semantic Web Community's Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)

How to begin

Step-by-step illustrated instructions...

Play in the Metadata Registry Sandbox

If you just want to experiment and play around a bit, go on over to the Metadata Registry Sandbox. The code is exactly the same, but it's using a non-production database. (Please be careful not to kick any sand out of the box) NOTE: The sandbox has its own domain now. If you had bookmarked the beta site thinking that it was the sandbox (and we did say that), it will shortly be a real beta site again complete with broken code, wacky ideas, and disappearing data. Please change your sandbox bookmarks to point to the Metadata Registry Sandbox. Any of the sandcastles that you had built in the beta, back when you thought it was the sandbox, are still there.

Still here, folks

Posted by: Jon at 20:36 on Saturday, February 16, 2013 GMT
When we first designed the NSDL Registry, part of the requirements was that it be able to run in Lynx (seriously) and be usable without JavaScript in all browsers including all versions of IE. As you will probably have noticed, the world of web development has changed a bit in the last 8 years. Lately [ ... ]

Whoops

Posted by: Jon at 23:32 on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 GMT
Until lately we’ve been pretty happy with our ISP, Dreamhost. But a few months ago, after several during-the-presentation meltdowns of the Registry we determined that we needed to move to a higher-performing, more reliable server. We could have done the easy thing and moved to a Virtual Private Server at Dreamhost. Instead, we setup an [ ... ]

SPARQL queries

Posted by: Jon at 14:55 on Thursday, April 14, 2011 GMT
We’re using Benjamin Nowack‘s excellent ARC libraries for a tiny bit of our RDF management. It may surprise you to know that we don’t use a triple store as our primary data store, but we do too many things with the data that we think are cumbersome at best when managed exclusively in a triple store (a subject [ ... ]

Check Your Bookmarks!

As of today, the link to Step-by-Step instruction on the Registry front page has been updated (and not a moment too soon). The new link still goes to the Registry Wiki, but the link itself is different, so those of you eager users who have bookmarked the old instructions might want to take a look [ ... ]

Announcing the New Open Metadata Registry

Posted by: Diane Hillmann at 21:52 on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 GMT
As of this week, the familiar NSDL Regisry has a new name–the Open Metadata Registry–and a new logo. The name change reflects the fact that we’re no longer receiving funding from the National Science Foundation on behalf of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), but also recognizes that the Registry has become one of the [ ... ]

Readable URIs

Posted by: Jon at 12:52 on Thursday, April 08, 2010 GMT
Over the years we’ve been engaged in a number of discussions in which the ‘readability’ of URIs was raised, either as an issue with non-readable URIs or as a requirement in new URI schemes. At the Registry, we understand and are sensitive to the desire for human readability in URIs. However embedding a language-specific label [ ... ]

SKOS updated for Vocabularies

Posted by: Jon at 01:24 on Friday, October 16, 2009 GMT
Just a quick note that today we updated the version of SKOS that we provide for describing value vocabularies. This deprecates the properties that were removed from the final SKOS release and adds the many new ones. We’ve also restricted the non-mapping relation properties (skos:broader, skos:narrower, skos:related) to the ‘containing’ scheme while providing cross-scheme mapping [ ... ]

The German National Library: translating and registering RDA elements and vocabularies

Posted by: Veronika Leibrecht at 16:19 on Monday, October 12, 2009 GMT
A prerequisite for the registering of our terms in the NSDL Registry and one of the greatest challenges for the German National Library at the moment is the translation of the RDA elements and vocabularies.  Since bibliographic description is executed with a highly specialised vocabulary, we are finding that the process of pinpointing the appropriate [ ... ]

LCSH, SKOS and subfields

Posted by: Jon at 20:41 on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 GMT
This week, Karen Coyle wrote a post about LCSH as linked data: beyond “dash-dash” which provoked a discussion on the id.loc.gov discussion list. It seems to me that there are several memes at play in this conversation: LCSH and SKOS As Karen points out, LCSH is more than just a simple thesaurus. It’s also a [ ... ]

Multiple languages and RDA

Posted by: Diane Hillmann at 21:04 on Monday, March 09, 2009 GMT
We’ve been thinking for some time about how to implement multi-lingual (and multi-script) vocabularies in the Registry. Some Registry users have been experimenting with language and script capability for some time (see Daniel Lovins’ Sandbox Hebrew GMD’s). But it was really when we started working with the RDA vocabularies that we got serious about multi-linguality. [ ... ]
