Source files and script to aggregate information about knowledge organization schemes
This repository is used to aggregate information about knowledge organization schemes (KOS) relevant to project coli-conc. The information is aggregated from:
KOS information from BARTOC will be added in a later version.
registry.yaml in this repository further contains metadata about the aggregated KOS registry.
Each commit to the
master branch results in two files published as GitHub release:
kos-registry.jsoncontains a JSKOS Registry
kos-registry.ndjsononly contains the list of JSKOS Concept Schemes
It's possible to download the latest release files this way:
curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/gbv/kos-registry/releases/latest \ | jq -r '.assets.browser_download_url' | xargs wget -N
To locally aggregate you need:
- some npm modules (run
npm run all (or just
make) will create the following files:
It will also combine those files by merging overlapping concept schemes into the relase files. Conflicting values are ignored so information in
kos.yaml has priority.
npm run validate to validate the files. See
Makefile for individual conversion steps.

- jskos-data - repository with concept schemes including concepts
