Semantic Development

Using our library science and information architecture expertise, we create a variety of semantic structures to help solve your technology and business needs for your digital assets, rights, and financial obligations.


Whether you are looking for a data architecture to power your system or just want to create structures that will improve the quality of your data, we help determine the right semantic solutions for you. Our team will assess your technology and business needs and develop the appropriate data structure to discovery and monetize content. Examples of semantic structures we create include:

  • Schemas
  • Authority Files (i.e Flat List Values)
  • Taxonomies
  • Thesauri
  • Ontologies

While our semantic development process is system agnostic, the semantic structures created can be deployed in any of the following systems:

  • Rights & Royalty Management
  • Digital Asset Management
  • Content Management
  • ERP
  • Master Data Management


Once we determine your digital asset and/or rights and royalty semantic structure needs, we create all building blocks of a standard semantic structure.

We help guide you toward industry standard asset and rights schemas and vocabularies, such as Dublin Core, SKOS,, RDF, DBpedia, PLUS, PRISM, etc. Additionally, we can provide you these semantic structures in Excel, JSON or XML serialization.
