At the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) we host Research Data
Australia , a discovery service for
collections of Australian research data. We currently use several
controlled vocabularies (including a high level "fields of research" vocab)
to describe items in RDA, and are looking to improve our subject browsing &
I'm wondering if you have worked with or have heard of tools that make use
of multiple controlled vocabularies in one faceted navigation system...
perhaps where drilling down through one high-level vocab will allow the
user to select concept(s) from a more specific vocab that has been mapped
"into" the hierarchy.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
All the best,
Data Librarian | *Australian National Data Service*
