Setting up your vocabulary data

  1. Create your vocabulary record in RVA.
  2. Add a version to your vocabulary, with its status as "current", and import RDF data into it, either from a PoolParty project, or by uploading SKOS RDF data. Ensure that both of the two checkboxes "Import vocabulary into the ANDS ARDC Vocabulary Repository" and "Publish vocabulary via the ANDS ARDC Linked Data API" are checked.
  3. Publish the vocabulary.
  4. As part of the publication process, the vocabulary data will be loaded into a Sesame repository. That repository will then be queried to find all SKOS ConceptScheme, Collection, and Concept resources in the respository whose IRIs match against the hostnames recorded against your organisation. (See the previous section for details about how to prepare for this.)
