Metadata interoperability is an active research area, especially for cultural heritage collections, which consist of heterogeneous objects described by a variety of metadata schemas. In this paper we propose an ontology-based metadata interoperability approach, which exploits, in an optimal way, the semantics of metadata schemas. In particular, we propose(More)
In this paper, we propose an ontology-based metadata integration methodology for the cultural heritage domain. The proposed real world approach considers an integration architecture in which CIDOC/CRM ontology acts as a mediating scheme. In this context, we present a mapping methodology from Encoded Archival Description (EAD) and Dublin Core (DC) metadata(More)
Temporal metadata are significant for the management of cultural collections since every object has a historical reference. The goal of this paper is to enrich collectionlevel descriptions with time representation and management capabilities. We obtain this by deploying a formalism called Multidimensional RDF, which enables the RDF model to represent in a(More)
Digital folklore collections are valuable sources for studying the cultural and oral tradition of a country. The main difficulty in managing such collections is material heterogeneity (handwritten texts, photographs, 3D objects, sound recordings etc.) that imposes different digitization, description and maintenance practices. A multi-layer metadata model(More)
