An Architecture for Sharing Metadata Among Geographically Distributed Archives
We present a solution to the problem of sharing metadata between different archives spread across a geographic region. In particular we consider the Italian Veneto Region archives. Initially we analyze the Veneto Region information system based on a domain gateway system called “SIRV-INTEROP project” and we propose a solution to provide advanced services against the regional archives. We deal with these issues in the context of the SIAR – Regional Archival Information System – project.
The aim of this work is to integrate different archive realities in order to provide unique public access to archival information. Moreover we propose a non-intrusive, flexible and scalable solution that preserves archives identity and autonomy.
