What is it?
This Wiki has been developped in the framework of the Athena project (eContent Plus program), workpackage 4 and is now used within the Linked Heritage project (ICT-PSP program), workpackage 3. Linked Heritage is a Best Practice network within the ICT-PSP funding Program.Enhancing the aggregation of new content and its retrievability through Europeana are the main objectives of this project. Linked Heritage is a legacy of the Athena project. Athena was also part of the constellation of projects contributing to Europeana. It started in November 2008 and ended in April 2011. Its general aim was to help the integration of European museums' digital resources into the Europeana portal. Among the different workpackages (WP) of the Athena project, the WP4 was dedicated to the terminology management with two strongfocuses on multilingualism and SKOS (Simplified Knowledge Organisation System).
Who is it for?
This Wiki 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 or just want to have a general information on that topic.
Cultural institutions who are contributing to Europeana or taking part to European projects may want:
- to follow step by step our complete recommendations in order to make their digital resources available and exploitable on Europeana;
- to check what we call Terminology Management on this wiki;
- to know more about SKOS, the standard format for terminology, and to find here some material to be guided in its use;
- to get the Athena Thesaurus and to enrich it;
- to discover the context of all this work: the Athena WP4 and its activity
