SUMMARY This article discusses how various controlled vocabularies, classification schemes, and thesauri can serve as some of the building blocks of the Semantic Web. These vocabularies have been developed over the course of decades, and can be put to great use in the development of robust Web services and Semantic Web technologies. The article covers how initial collaboration between the Semantic Web, Library and Metadata communities are creating partnerships to complete work in this area. It… 
Perceptions of Librarians Regarding Semantic Web and Linked Data Technologies
TLDR
It is found that an understanding of key terms and interest in the development of aSemantic Web catalog are high among the queried group, but barriers such as financial scarcity and lack of Semantic Web best practices may slow future development.
Controlled Vocabularies in the Digital Age: Are They Still Relevant?
TLDR
This research tends to confirm that LCSH could benefit from simplification as well as automation and offers some suggestions for improvements in both areas.
Merging Controlled Vocabularies for More Efficient Subject-Based IR Systems
TLDR
In this paper, a methodology is proposed, capable of incorporating thesauri into existing LCSH-based Information Retrieval-IR systems, modeled as a Simple Knowledge Organization System SKOS ontology, which can be employed by appropriate subject-based IR systems.

Metadata for semantic and social applications
TLDR
The implementation of the Dublin Core Terms application profile in the management of crosswalks involving MARC is described, which is sufficient to produce scripts written in OCLC's Semantic Equivalence Expression Language (or Seel), which are called from the Crosswalk Web Service to generate production-grade translations.
AUTHORIS: a tool for authority control in the semantic web
TLDR
The use of learning rules and the facilities of linked data make it easier for information organizations to reutilize products for authority control and distribute the information among bibliographic and non-bibliographic entities.
Exposing MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data As Linked Data With Provenance
TLDR
This paper presents an approach on transitioning the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data into RDF triple representation based on the linked data principles and an automatic generation of the provenance information of the library metadata is considered.
