Search and browse capabilities are essential for data discoverability. These functions are enhanced by the use of semantic tools that promote consistent and efficient searches. This session is intended to educate the US information management and researcher community about the capabilities and goals of controlled vocabularies, thesauri, and ontologies. We hope to determine if there are potential cross-cutting or synergistic activities that could help promote data discoverability. We will have a panel of three: John Porter (VCR LTER) will discuss the US LTER Controlled Vocabulary, Barbara Magagna (Environment Agency Austria) will discuss Envthes, and Pier Luigi Buttigieg (Jacobs University Bremen, Germany) will discuss the ENVO ontology.
