With the grown availability of large and specialized online ontologies, the questions about the integration of independently developed ontologies have become even more important. To facilitate the ontology integration process, this paper presents an ontology integration support module, that promotes the creation of new ontologies by reusing others. The hypothesis is that the ontology designer achieves a reduction in the time dedicated to create a new ontology, as well as obtain ontologies with better quality. The experimental use of the prototype developed showed evidence that the hypothesis can be confirmed.
