Marcia Zeng, Dongming Zhang, Diane Vizine-Goetz and Rebecca Guenther

ASIS&T 2008 Annual Meeting (AM08 2008)
Columbus, Ohio, October 24-29, 2008


This panel is a continuing effort of the ASIST Standards Committee to promote the awareness of standards while bring in a focused panel to address an array of important issues around standards and applications in which the ASIST community would be interested.

Web services provide a standard means of interoperating between different software applications, running on a variety of platforms and/or frameworks. The panel will present research and development in the applications of Web services that support search optimization, metadata generation, indexing, and terminologies management and sharing. The panelists are experts and leaders in these areas and have already conducted extensive research and developed Web services. In specific, the presentations will focus on the following research and applications: 1) UMLS/MeSH concept-based indexing and search optimization services and their applications in institutional repositories at the Welch Medical Library, Johns Hopkins University; 2) an OCLC research project that offers accessible, modular, web-based terminology services; and 3) the registry development for standards-based vocabularies at the Library of Congress.
