Hi John,

By 'controlled vocabulary' if you mean descriptive meta-data, then the
answer is yes it is widely used within institutional repositories (ie.
Dublin Core).

Another type of controlled vocabulary is a methods taxonomy that we have
developed and used for this project.

Also, you may with to look at the work from the repository support
organisations.
