Abstract. The paper presents an on-going project in developing a semantic information portal for academic institution. The concept of a semantic platform called SemLib, grew out of many academic discussions and it reflects the information needs of researchers and educators from Technical University of Czestochowa. The proposed method of needs assessment is especially designed to create the starting point to build semantic structure of the digital library. The author proposes an approach for managing, organizing and populating knowledge by semanticizing existing information resources in the digital and traditional paper form. The prototyped solution is based on the Semantic MediaWiki software, that allows for cooperative resource building, maintaining and offers enhanced querying capabilities. Experimental results demonstrate the potentials of the proposed system as well as some obstacles that are the subject to improvement by further development of the SemLib platform.
