[EP-tech] Division/Subject/Department Info

In general, in Eprints, we should rely on ontologies (instead of
semi-static classifications) for describing organizations. This is a
very good example:


What you do, then, is to implement the ontology on the university server
(using iQvoc for example) and use it. Next time, when the org changes,
someone will decide if a split/merge/close occours and what to do. You
can also have events in ontologies, so you can be notified on changes
and keep track of what happen in the organization structure.
