ABSTRACT In this paper, we propose an ontology-based metadata integration methodology for the cultural heritage domain. The proposed
real - world approach considers an integration architecture in which CIDOC/CRM ontology acts as a mediating scheme. In this
context, we present a mapping methodology from Encoded Archival Description (EAD) and Dublin Core (DC) metadata to CIDOC/CRM,
and discuss the faced difficulties.

    ABSTRACT: In the recent decades, we have witnessed a tremendous proliferation of metadata schemas, particularly in the cultural heritage domain. As a consequence, there is a growing need to integrate these schemas to solve a number of problems, mainly concerning interoperability issues and loss of implicit knowledge. In this paper, we present a semantic mapping of VRA Core 4.0, a cultural heritage metadata schema describing visual resources, to CIDOC CRM. The mapping rules are expressed formally using a path-based mapping language called Mapping Description Language (MDL). This work is based on a semantic integration scenario, where CIDOC CRM acts as a mediation schema.

    ABSTRACT: Nowadays, due to the growing development of eGovernment information systems, there is an increasing need to handle Public Sector Information (PSI) in a homogeneous way. Ontologies are currently a powerful tool to act as semantic reference models for the development of information systems and as semantic mediators for achieving interoperability. In this paper, we analyze the procedures that lead to the PSI’s production and management and we present all the concepts and agents that relate to it. Based on this analysis and given that CIDOC CRM ontology is able to define the rich semantics of the historical records’ production and management, we propose the CIDOC CRM to represent the public records’ conceptualization and to act as a reference model for PSI.

    ABSTRACT: The wide use of a number of cultural heritage metadata schemas imposes the development of new interoperability techniques that facilitate unified access to cultural resources. In this paper, we focus on the ontology based semantic integration by proposing an expressive mapping language for the specification of the mappings between the XML-based metadata schemas and the CIDOC CRM ontology. We also present an algorithm for the transformation of XPath queries posed on XML-based metadata into equivalent queries on the CIDOC CRM ontology.
