In the experiment described in this report, we wanted to examine a) how integration of tools for ontology reuse within the ontology engineering environment and b) quality information on the ontologies to be reused, will facilitate the reuse of ontological ressources. In order to test that we conducted an experiment in which 20 researchers from the semantic web community participated. We have identified how tools can help during the steps of finding and integrating ontological content to reuse, and show that having quality information about the ontologies available facilitates the selection step for the participants of our study.
