Dolmen: A Linked Open Data Model to Enhance Museum Object Descriptions

Clément Arsenault, Elaine Ménard

Abstract


This paper presents the DOLMEN project (Linked Open Data:
Museums and Digital Environment), offering to develop a linked open data model
that will allow Canadian museums to disseminate the rich and sophisticated
content emanating from their various databases and to, in turn, make their
cultural and heritage collections more accessible to future generations. The
rationale, specific objectives, proposed methodology and expected benefits are
briefly presented and explained.
