Abstract

In this paper, we propose an ontology-based metadata integration methodology for the cultural heritage domain. The proposed real - world approach considers an integration architecture in which CIDOC/CRM ontology acts as a mediating scheme. In this context, we present a mapping methodology from Encoded Archival Description (EAD) and Dublin Core (DC) metadata to CIDOC/CRM, and discuss the faced difficulties.
