This page is structured along the line of a separation between handbooks and textbooks. We deemed handbooks those that either say 'handbook', are collections of papers, and have no exercises (for some that was a bit of a guess based on the toc; change the list as appropriate).

A textbook has some structure in it following some pedagogy of presenting the material, and at least has a set of exercises.

Textbooks

note: there are several books on programming the semantic web and a developers guide to semantic web, but that was assumed out of scope (for now at least in the first search).

Handbooks

Most handbooks listed here have a few informal notes added to them, which are yet to be updated (ideally with a real book review).

General handbooks

Subtopics in ontology

These handbooks zoom in on more detail of one or more subtopics of ontologies.
