In the previous chapter, we defined a general architecture for describing information semantics in terms of ontologies that are derived from shared terminologies of a domain and encoded using terminological languages in order to give them a clean, model-theoretic semantics. We also presented a strategy for building these ontologies. What is still missing at the moment is a strategy of how to actually relate information to its semantics encoded in source ontologies. In this chapter, we will discuss how weakly structured information can be linked to the ontology infrastructure described in the previous chapters using metadata.
