This paper proposes an expansion of queries based on formal domain ontologies in the context of the search for learning resources in repositories. The expansion process uses the relation types that are represented in these models; common ontological relations, and ontological relations specific to domain and traditional terminology relations, typical of thesauri. The tests were conducted using Gene ontology as the knowledge base and MERLOT is used as the test repository. The results of this study case indicate that, at similar levels of precision, expanded queries improve levels of novelty and coverage compared to the original query (without expansion), i.e. expanded queries allow the user to retrieve relevant objects, which might not be obtained without expansion.
