    • International framework The MICHAEL service
      • Production module ( XML database )
      • Publication module (XML search engine)
      • The two MICHAEL modules act as data repositories that are consistent with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) making metadata available in both standard Dublin Core and MICHAEL format .
      • A MICHAEL national ‘ instance ’ consists of both a production module and a publication module .
      • The MICHAEL platform already exists and the production module is being used in France, Italy and the UK to manage digital cultural heritage inventories .
    • International framework The MICHAEL Service: metadata
      • The following standards are implemented in MICHAEL :
      • Item-level meta-data: The Dublin Core meta-data Element Set .
      • DC.Culture : enables the searching of item-level metadata through 4 key access points – Who, What, Where and When. Potentially allows for implementation of GIS.
      • Collection-level meta-data: The Research Support Librari es Programme collection-level meta-data model forms the basis for the collection-level meta-data to be used in MICHAEL.
      • Info: http://www.michael-culture.eu/technology.html
    • International framework The MICHAEL service: open source software
      • The MICHAEL platform is being distributed as open source software, and is built on top of other well-known open source components :
      • Apache Cocoon : an XML infrastructure for complex Web applications
      • eXist : an XML database management system
      • Xdepo : a Cocoon environment to manage data stored in an XML database using Web forms
      • SDX : a search engine for large collections of XML documents
