Abstract

In contrast to electronic document collections we find in contemporary digital libraries, systems applied in the cultural domain have to satisfy specific requirements with respect to data ingest, management, and access. Such systems should also be able to support the collaborative work of domain experts and furthermore offer mechanisms to exploit the value-added information resulting from a collaborative process like scientific discussions. In this paper, we present the solutions to these requirements developed and realized in the COLLATE system, where advanced methods for document classification, content management, and a new kind of context-based retrieval using scientific discourses are applied.
