    Sharing cultural heritage the linked open data way: why you should sign up

    Cultural heritage institutions are beginning to explore the added value of sharing data. We report on Dutch initiatives that have started opening up their data through far-reaching open licenses as well as initiatives that are using the Linked Open Data cloud to integrate and enriching heritage collection metadata.

    As galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMS) are redefining their role as nodes in a wider network of content creators and providers, open innovation becomes key. GLAMS across the world are beginning to explore the added value of sharing data resources following the so-called Linked Open Data (LOD) principles. In this paper, we provide an overview of the practical uses and implications of using Linked Open Data through four projects currently running in the heritage domain. We have chosen these four projects among many because they show the usage of Linked Open Data from different perspectives. In this article, we first introduce the most important aspects of open data and linked data, for those not familiar with it yet (Sections 2 and 3). We shall then present four projects that are active in contributing or using linked data in Section 4, followed by a discussion of risks and advantages and concluding remarks in Section 5.

    HOMER, the strategic MED project focused on Open Data and Public Sector Information (PSI)

     

    The overall goal of HOMER is to contribute to unlock the full potential of the Public Sector Information in the Mediterranean space, by contributing to make the all area a competitive territory, able to match global competition and to ensure a sustainable growth and employment for the next generations.

    In line with the EU Digital Agenda, HOMER will facilitate the wider deployment of PSI in Spain, Italy, France, Malta, Greece, Slovenia, Cyprus and Montenegro, enabling their public governments to better address the legal, cultural and technological challenges linked to PSI policy.

    Starting from exposing 5 strategic sectors, characterising the MED political agenda of the next decades (Agriculture, Tourism, Environment, Energy and Culture), consistent with the NSRF strategies of the partners and linked to the commitment of their internal departments, a dedicated Task Force composed of IT and Open data experts will be able to support HOMER institutional partnersto face the legal cultural and technological obstacles of Open Data policy.

    In this way, during its first phase, HOMER will be able to open hundreds of public datasets, enhancing digital heritage transparency across the Mediterranean.

    Shakespeare’s works as Linked Data

    Proyecto que pretende convertir la obra de William Shakespeare en Linked Data:

    "I decided to take the XML encodings of Shakespeare’s works (all the plays and some verse works) which were provided in the Will’s World Registry, and see if they could be expressed as Linked Data. The intention is to provide a set of stable URLs which represent every aspect of the plays’ text, and which can be used as the basis for a shared understanding of this resource.  This is not really a hack in the usual sense, in that there isn’t very much to see when you have finished.  The value of the exercise will only become apparent, as and when other people start using the URLs which have been published".

    La 'materia prima' de la propuesta procede de Will's World Registry, "that provides a registry of Shakespeare related resources and services, and searchable metadata aggregated from those resource".

    Decipher, a solution for digital heritage that works with semantic web technologies

    DECIPHER aims to support the discovery and exploration of cultural heritage through story and narrative. To do this the project is developing new solutions to the whole range of narrative construction, knowledge visualisation and display problems for museums.

    Digital heritage and semantic web technologies hold out the promise of nearly unlimited access to cultural knowledge. The problem is that cultural meaning does not reside in individual objects but in the patterns of knowledge and events, belief and thought that link them to each other and to the observer. This is why narrative is so important to the communication of, and meaningful understanding, of culture.

    DECIPHER is developing new solutions to the whole range of narrative construction, knowledge visualisation and display problems, with a high degree of future proofing.

     

    DECIPHER is a three year, €4.3 million Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) supported by the European Commission.

     

    OBJETIVOS DEL PROYECTO

    · Published semantic workflow models and formalised representations of the curatorial processes.

    · Published schema and software tools for describing cultural content in terms of their relationships to events, places, people and themes, and the user’s purpose and cognitive profile.

    · Search, retrieval and aggregation software tools that harvest cultural content from public sources across domains (art, music, dance etc.) in such a way that it can be semi-automatically described with the event schema.

    · Reasoning-based software tools that support the individual organisation and exploration of content across historical periods and cultural domains.

    · A software Demonstrator built of Open Source components that creates a robust and sustainable repository of narrative that is linked to the collections of digital cultural objects held by partner institutions and external networks. This will be designed for subsequent exploitation on a Software as a Service model.

    · Standard-based user interfaces that deliver a personalised, rich media experience that use any browser-based device capabilities for visualisation, including 3D and stereo image and sound.

    En esta presentación realizada en el Museo Británico el 13 de enero de 2011 por Leif Isaksen, Kirk Martinez y  Graeme Earl de la Universidad de Southampton,  se hace un resumen de los datos obtenidos tras cursar una encuesta a más de 60 profesionales que trabajan en el ámbito del patrimonio cultural en el mundo, al respecto del uso de la Web Semántica en su trabajo y de su adecuación y enfoque hacia la linked open data web.
