    We describe work undertaken to investigate automated querying of simple forms of ontology by software agents to acquire the semantics of metadata terms. Individual terms as well as whole vocabularies can be investigated by agents through a software interface and by humans through an interactive web-based interface. The server supports discovery, sharing and re-use of vocabularies and specific terms, facilitating machine interpretation of semantics and convergence of ontologies in specific domains. Exposure, and hence alignment through ontological engineering should lead to an improvement in interoperability of systems in particular sectors such as education, cultural heritage and publishing.
