Printed and online publications, produced by WP7 Dissemination in cooperation with WP1 Management, are produced with a goal to disseminate the outcomes achieved by the different WPs to a broader public.

Cover Terminology

Your terminology as a part of the semantic webrecommendations for design and management (PDF, 2.5MB)

This publication, edited by Linked Heritage WP3 and ATHENA WP4 "Terminology and multilingualism", aims in priority at people working in European museums, experts or non-experts in Information Engineering and/or Linguistics, who have an interest on terminology and multilingualism. It proposes recommendations helping you to manage your terminology, to make it compliant and optimized for improving multilinguality on Europeana and to make it as a part of the Semantic Web following. The more you respect them, the more you improve the future retrievability of your digital collections online.

Cover Digital Cultural Content

Geocoded Digital Cultural Content (PDF, 2731 kb)

The aim of the Linked Heritage project is to support cultural institutions in providing object data for publication in Europeana. A way of supporting them is by providing instruments and tools helping them in enlarging their knowledge on digitisation issues. This new book Geocoded Digital Cultural Content, edited by Franc J. Zakrajsek and Vlasta Vodeb focuses on Geographic location, which is a very important attribute of a cultural heritage item. It can describe provenience, the current institution, as well as the location of the event or other related events. The added value of the geo-coded cultural content is in the browsing of cultural portals efficiently through space and time, and searching for content in a more user friendly way. This includes searching without necessitating the typing of geographical names, making it possible to discover overlapping cultural content at the same location but originating from different sources and at different times. Geo-coding maps the cultural content, performing GIS calculations and simulations, overlapping architectural/archaeological heritage with museum objects and intangible heritage, defining the protected areas of monuments, geo-visualisation and historical simulations. The authors investigate here the possibilities and approaches regarding the use of e-infrastructure in geo-coded digital culture. This work is a result of a strong cooperation between Linked Heritage and the INDICATE (International Network for a Digital Cultural Heritage e-Infrastructure), project, a concluded European Union FP7 project which aimed to establish a network of common interest made up of experts and researchers in the field of e-infrastructures and digital cultural heritage at Euro Mediterranean level.

 Linked Heritage publications represent a continuation of the training booklets series, inaugurated in the framework of the ATHENA project.
