Abstract:
In this paper, we show how Semantic Web techniques can help to solve semantic interoperability issues in the cultural heritage domain. In particular, these techniques can enable integrated access to heterogeneous collections by representing their controlled description vocabularies (e.g. thesauri) in a standardized format â Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS). We also present existing automatic alignment procedures that can assist cultural heritage practitioners to connect such vocabularies at the semantic level, building similarity links between the concepts they contain.
