News Exercise Some Control

One of Omeka S’s oldest modules, Value Suggest is a utility tool that aims to improve resource description and access by making a huge range of vocabulary services available to resource template creators. Many of those longstanding services, such as the LIbrary of Congress Linked Data Service, OCLC Metadata Services, and The Getty Vocabularies, will be familiar to our users.

Regularly updated, the most recent version of the module offers several new powerful services. Now, users wishing to disambiguate researchers and research organizations now have the option to draw on the information provided by ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and Research Organization Registry (ROR).

These additions join a wealth of linked data vocabulary services options for users around the world:

Review your collections and consider the ways that implementing Value Suggest might help you gain some additional control over your description.

Note that the NDE Termennetwerk vocabularies are now available as a separate module. That module requires Value Suggest to be installed and active.
