First slide of SkoHub presentation at LIS Workshop 2021

Last Friday afternoon, the 2021 Workshop on Classification and Subject Indexing in Library and Information Science (LIS Workshop) took place organized by the Working Group within the GfKL – Data Science Society. Adrian and Steffen had the chance to present SkoHub in the workshop’s first presentation. The slides can be viewed at

Here is an overview over the full programme that comprised six talks:

  • Adrian Pohl (hbz, Cologne, Germany) & Steffen Rörtgen (GWDG, Göttingen, Germany): SkoHub: Publishing and using knowledge organization systems on the web
  • Colin Higgins (University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom): Justice, governance, and the thesaurus – the Cambridge experience with ‘illegal aliens’
  • Gislene Rodrigues da Silva & Célia da Consolação Dias (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte Brasil): Subjective aspects of indexing photographs from visual communication using a reading model based on the complex method and the primary functions of the image
  • Heidrun Wiesenmüller (Stuttgart Media University, Stuttgart, Germany): Orientation and exploration – the presentation of subject headings in German catalog
  • Karin Schmidgall (Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach, Marbach, Germany) & Matthias Finck (Effective Webwork, Hamburg, Germany): Glückliche Funde - ein Katalog der Forschende auf neue Ideen und Pfade bringt
  • Julijana Nadj-Guttandin (Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Frankfurt, Germany) & Sarah Pielmeier (University and State Library, Münster, Germany): Ein neues und modulares Regelwerk für die verbale Inhaltserschließung / A new and modular standard for subject indexing

The workshop happened as part of the virtual conference “Data Science, Statistics & Visualisation and European Conference on Data Analysis 2021” (DSSV-ECDA 2021). The promotion for the workshop could probably have been better, e.g. the presentations weren’t even listed in the regular DSSV-ECDA programme. In the end, the speakers and moderators were among themselves with little additional audience. However, the talks discussed interesting topics and discussion was lively.
