The digitization of cultural heritage has become a routine feature of heritage institutions. Globally, the physical remains of history are being scanned and represented in digital formats – to facilitate access, to enable online communication and to preserve the documentation in case of loss or destruction. Museums, libraries and archives are shaping the process of digital conversion, which fundamentally expands the institutional range of services. The 23rd EVA conference in Berlin offers a discussion forum for these current topics. It will encourage the exchange between heritage institutions and technology providers, information professionals and the public administration, highlighting innovative contributions and proposals for application-oriented workshops.
Dr. Felix Sasaki will participate to the conference with a presentation entitled “Under the tip of the ice berg: best practices for enrichment of (meta)data with linked open data” on Wednesday 9 November 2016. He will talk about using open data to enrich (meta)data, by presenting the FREME open framework of e-Services and how it works in the context of some application fields like the agriculture segment.
