Abstract: Digital Libraries and Web-Based Information Systems
It has long been realised that the web could benefit from
having its content understandable and available in a
machine processable form, and it is widely agreed
that ontologies will play a key role in providing much
enabling infrastructure to support this goal.
In this chapter, we review briefly a selected history of
description logics in web-based information systems, and
the more recent developments related to
OIL, DAML+OIL and the semantic web.
OIL and DAML+OIL are ontology languages specifically
designed for use on the web;
they exploit existing web standards (XML, RDF, and RDFS),
adding the formal rigor of a description logic and
the ontological primitives of object oriented and frame
