  • Abstract
    Museums as well as other communities related to cultural heritage have developed many standards with different scopes and levels of implementation. The CIDOC CRM is the international standard (ISO 21127:2006) for the controlled exchange of cultural heritage information. Although covering the universe of cultural heritage concepts and providing the formal ontology for archives, libraries and museums, implementations and utilizations of this model are still considered rare.
    While the CIDOC CRM is the result of the efforts of the specialized CIDOC working group, it seems to be difficult for other members of the professional community of museum specialists to share the highly abstract essence of a conceptual reference model. The same is true for other complex and diversified standards. Wikis with semantic functionality are capable to deal with both the complex and abstract features of an ontology as well as multiple pieces of data and information. Therefore the combination of the model and a wiki can provide new qualities of accessibility and connectivity for cultural heritage standards.

    • 1. CoReWIKI and Semantic Web A node for cultural heritage standards Thomas Tunsch
    • 2. Stewardship and Cultural Memory Organizations in the Digital Age (Sep 12, 2008)  Notes & remarks (MuseumsWiki) – cf. Google search (“Stewardship…”) September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 2
    • 3. History, Heritage, and Cultural Memory Organizations I  “It is useful to distinguish between – the past, what happened; – history, accounts of the past; and – heritage, which consists of those parts of the past that affect us in the present. […] September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 3
    • 4. History, Heritage, and Cultural Memory Organizations II  Histories are always multiple and and incomplete […]  Included in our cultural, intellectual, and professional heritage are the historical narratives we know and we accept and which help shape our sense of identity.” – Buckland, M. K. (2006). Emanuel Goldberg and his knowledge machine information, invention, and political forces. New directions in information management. Westport, Conn: Libraries Unlimited, pp. 254, 255  Dynamic character of heritage and the role of cultural memory organizations September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 4
    • 5. Complex cultural context Robert L. Stevenson The Bottle Imp  Honolulu Ballroom Heinrich Berger Letters Royal Hawaiian Band “Thither he went, because he feared to be alone; and there, among happy faces, walked to and fro, and heard the tunes go up and down, and saw Berger beat the measure, and all the while he heard the flames crackle, and saw the red fire burning in the bottomless pit.” Kingdom of Hawaiʻi King Kalākaua Molokaʻi Leprosy Leper colony Father Damien Hoʻokena Haole      Literature Music History Geography Language Wikipedia: “The Bottle Imp” Historical and cultural background Kōkua September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 5
    • 6. Which web is what?  "the semantic web is never going to get here. Instead we'll pour more semanticness into the existing web" – http://twitter.com/dmje/statuses/785062078, referring to Weaving a Web of Data (MW2008 workshop)  “The web has immense semantic value already. However, for a specific purpose the correlative semantic relations have to be extracted from the surrounding noise and to be expressed in a formal structure or model.” – http://museums.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Jpbowen#Semantic September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 6
    • 7. Standards for cultural heritage information  Museums as example – – – – – documentation procedures data structure terminology …  different – cultures – levels – scopes September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 7
    • 8. CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model  CIDOC: International Committee on Documentation, International Council of Museums  International standard (ISO 21127:2006) – controlled exchange of cultural heritage information – formal ontology for archives, libraries and museums – implementations and utilizations still rare September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 8
    • 9. Collaborative communities  Content – Terms – Definitions – Links (+ Semantic MediaWiki) – Media – Categories – Portals  Contributors & communities – People – Projects – Institutions – Initiatives September 19, 2008 The Friday Afternoon Seminar, UC Berkeley iSchool 9
