This document is a guide to using the SKOS Core vocabulary. SKOS Core is an RDF vocabulary for describing thesauri, terminologies, controlled vocabularies and similar types of knowledge organisation systems.
The 'Quick Start' section of this guide introduces the basic features of SKOS Core, including how to declare concepts and concept schemes, label concepts, declare semantic relationships, and publish your scheme on the semantic web.
The 'Advanced Features' section of this guide includes a description of how to extend SKOS Core to create your own labelling or semantic relation properties, how to define ordered and/or labelled collections of concepts, how to describe scheme versions, and how to connect a SKOS concept scheme to an ontology.
