New Methods for Digitising, Searching, and Accessing Cultural Heritage Collections

New Methods for Digitising, Searching, and Accessing Cultural Heritage Collections
New Methods for Digitising, Searching, and Accessing Cultural Heritage Collections
The first session will describe the processes, tools and techniques that are used for digitising, cataloguing, searching, and accessing multimedia representations of works of art in a range of cultural heritage institutions from across Europe. Particular attention will be made to 3D content acquisition, advanced searching methodologies, and the use of digital content in eLearning applications. Practical issues such as fit with infrastructure (people, processes, culture, systems) and ease of use (training, deployment and operation) will also be discussed. The second session will present practical guidelines on how to use cultural heritage ontologies (specifically the CIDOC CRM) to structure, integrate and improve access to multimedia museum and gallery information. We will present both the challenges and benefits of using the CIDOC CRM and Semantic Web techniques to improve the understandability and navigation of large digital collections. We will discuss how mapping museum and gallery legacy systems to a common ontological model can facilitate interoperability and improve accessibility. Both sessions will focus on the IST FP5 supported Sculpteur project (http://www.sculpteurweb.org) as a case study and will include the wider experiences of the partners involved. Experiences will be presented from a range of museums and galleries that include the Victoria and Albert Museum and National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Italy, and the Musee de Cherbourg and the Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musees de France (C2RMF). Facilities will be provided for hands-on access to the technology and techniques used in Sculpteur, including 3D content.

Abstract

The first session will describe the processes, tools and techniques that are used for digitising, cataloguing, searching, and accessing multimedia representations of works of art in a range of cultural heritage institutions from across Europe. Particular attention will be made to 3D content acquisition, advanced searching methodologies, and the use of digital content in eLearning applications. Practical issues such as fit with infrastructure (people, processes, culture, systems) and ease of use (training, deployment and operation) will also be discussed. The second session will present practical guidelines on how to use cultural heritage ontologies (specifically the CIDOC CRM) to structure, integrate and improve access to multimedia museum and gallery information. We will present both the challenges and benefits of using the CIDOC CRM and Semantic Web techniques to improve the understandability and navigation of large digital collections. We will discuss how mapping museum and gallery legacy systems to a common ontological model can facilitate interoperability and improve accessibility. Both sessions will focus on the IST FP5 supported Sculpteur project (http://www.sculpteurweb.org) as a case study and will include the wider experiences of the partners involved. Experiences will be presented from a range of museums and galleries that include the Victoria and Albert Museum and National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Italy, and the Musee de Cherbourg and the Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musees de France (C2RMF). Facilities will be provided for hands-on access to the technology and techniques used in Sculpteur, including 3D content.
