Skosify is a tool that can be used to convert vocabularies expressed as RDFS and OWL into SKOS format. It can also be used to improve, enrich and validate existing SKOS vocabularies.

The Finnish Ontology Library Service ONKI was published as a living laboratory prototype for public use in 2008. Its idea is to support content indexers and ontology developers via a browser interface and machine APIs. ONKI has been well-accepted, but being a prototype maintained by the ending research project FinnONTO (2003–2012), a more sustainable service was needed, supported by permanent governmental funding. To achieve this, ONKI was deployed and is being further developed by the National Library of Finland into a new national vocabulary service Finto. We discuss challenges in the deployment of ONKI into Finto and lessons learned during the transition process.
