The paper describes the process of modelling domain knowledge of Information Science (IS) by creating an Ontology of Information Science domain (OIS). It also reports on the life cycle of the ontology building process using Methontology, based on the IEEE standard for development software life cycle process, which mainly consists of: specification, conceptualization, formalization, implementation, maintenance and evaluation. The information resource used in acquisition and evaluation has been obtained from Information Science. The conceptualization consists of identifying IS concepts and grouping them into a hierarchy tree based on a faceted classification scheme. The OIS ontology is formalized by using the ontology editor Protégé to generate the ontology code. The achieved result is OIS ontology which has fourteen facets: Actors, Method, Practice, Studies, Mediator, Kinds, Domains, Resources, Legislation, Philosophy & Theories, Societal, Tool, Time and Space. The model is evaluated using ontology quality criteria to check the ontology’s usefulness, and how it could be transferred into application ontology for Information Science education.
