SIMILE es un proyecto centrado en el desarrollo de herramientas abiertas (open source) y robustas que permitan a los usuarios acceder, gestionar, visualizar y reutilizar recursos digitales. Para ello, SIMILE busca aumentar la interoperabilidad semántica entre recursos digitales, vocabularios/ontologías, metadatos y servicios.
SIMILE es un proyecto dirigido por  MIT Libraries y MIT CSAIL (Laboratorio del MIT de ciencias computacionales e inteligencia artificial)

"SIMILE is focused on developing robust, open source tools that empower users to access, manage, visualize and reuse digital assets.
SIMILE seeks to enhance inter-operability among digital assets, schemata/vocabularies/ontologies, metadata, and services. A key challenge is that the collections which must inter-operate are often distributed across individual, community, and institutional stores. We seek to be able to provide end-user services by drawing upon the assets, schemata/vocabularies/ontologies, and metadata held in such stores.
SIMILE will leverage and extend DSpace, enhancing its support for arbitrary schemata and metadata, primarily though the application of RDF and semantic web techniques. The project also aims to implement a digital asset dissemination architecture based upon web standards. The dissemination architecture will provide a mechanism to add useful "views" to a particular digital artifact (i.e. asset, schema, or metadata instance), and bind those views to consuming services.
To guide the SIMILE effort we will focus on well-defined, real-world use cases in the libraries domain. Since parallel work is underway to deploy DSpace at a number of leading research libraries, we hope that such an approach will lead to a powerful deployment channel through which the utility and readiness of semantic web tools and techniques can be compellingly demonstrated in a visible and global community.
The SIMILE Project and its members are fully committed to the open source principles of software distribution and open development and for this reason, it releases the created intellectual property (both software and reports) under a BSD-style license."
