Poster description:

This poster proposes a framework for a terminology management system that supports the use of Arabic terminology. It will enable a tiered approach to allow different levels of complexity in subject representation and be compatible in syntax with other controlled vocabularies and different metadata standards. It will enhance library technology infrastructure for Arabic libraries and is implementable in multiple domains including those of libraries, museums, archives, information services and scientific communities.
