For university students stepping into learning of the professional field or even graduate students that have engaged in learning of such a field for many years, they are often unable to grasp the big picture of “the scope of professionalism”, neither do they have a clue how to engage in self-learning. Therefore, how to construct the discipline-oriented ontology from the learner’s standpoint to enable the learner to grasp the whole picture of the discipline as well as developing a learning APP for young people to use are important issues that facilitate selflearning. In this study, library and information science was used as the example for developing discipline-oriented LIS Ontology. In addition, the ORCID system API was employed to integrate teachers’ English publications included in the Scopus database and Chinese publications included in the CLISA database in order to develop a learning APP for the discipline, allowing students to search departments, teachers, curriculums, research projects, knowledge scope, and other information of the discipline and link to the full-text database via their mobile phone, so that they can plan their own learning map and path.
