English abstract

The emergence of Semantic Web and LOD - Linked Open Data - technologies enable that digital objects representing the holdings of archives, libraries and museums collections be semantically interlinked throughout the Web. What are the different types of cultural relevant relationships that may exists between digital objects of collections in archives, libraries and museums throughout the Web? How discover, organize and formalize these relationships to be used by curators in LOD applications? A methodology to analyze the holdings of archives, libraries and museums is proposed based on onomasiologic perspective. Such methodology is applied to a hypothetical competency question that might be proposed by a digital curator. Results indicated that conceptual models such as FRBR, CIDOC CRM and EDM may provide a rich repertoire of semantic relationships that may be used in LOD applications to interlink collections in heritage institutions.
