Title:Dolmen: A linked open data model to enhance museum object descriptions
Author(s):Arsenault, Cl.; Ménard, E.
Subject(s):Linked open data
Cultural heritage
Abstract:Our research project, DOLMEN (Linked Open Data: Museums and Digital Environment), offers to develop a linked open data model that will allow Canadian museums to disseminate the rich and sophisticated content emanating from their various databases and to, in turn, make their cultural and heritage collections more accessible to future generations. The use of linked open data creates a new context for enriching museum objects descriptions within existing metadata records and linking them to semantically related resources. In other words, object descriptions will be improved by adding data provided by various museums and other cultural resources databases. DOLMEN is intended to be an innovative tool for both professionals working in museums and the general public that will provide better access to Canadian cultural and heritage collections.
