This class comprises documents that establish controlled terminology (nomina) for consistent use. They may also describe relationships between entities and controlled terminology and relationships between entities. Note that any meaningful change in a Knowledge Organisation System (KOS) that affects the validity status of its elements defines a new release (Expression) of the KOS. Note that identifiers created following a rule in a KOS are to be regarded as being taken from this KOS, even though not explicitly spelled out. This definition of KOS reflects current library practice and not the use of the term in general.
