Example story: As a librarian I want my student catalogers to be guided through selection of vocabulary terms to improve both their accuracy and speed. Furthermore, I want to data entry tool to auto-configure the vocabulary terms based on knowledge of the ontology and vocabulary we have decided to use for our project.

This use case addresses the need to improve data creation accuracy. In current systems with controlled vocabularies expressed as simple strings there are frequent errors in entry. In linked data systems URIs from controlled vocabularies are used to avoid some of the problems of simple strings but applications need ways for users to efficiently and accurately select terms. Typeahead lookup to improve reduces user effort/time while also improving data quality on entry and curation.

Potential Demonstrations

A. Intelligent term expansions / suggestions based on LD show up as type-ahead in a search box

B. Possibilities based on linked data show as suggestions on a zero-results search page
