  • JeromeDL - the Semantic Digital Library

    1. 1. JeromeDL the Semantic Digital Library Sebastian R. Kruk, Stefan Decker
    2. 2. Outline <ul><li>Motivation </li></ul><ul><li>From paper books to social media </li></ul><ul><li>Semantic services in JeromeDL </li></ul><ul><li>Social services in JeromeDL </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata in use in JeromeDL </li></ul><ul><li>Semantic DL in eLearning and Museums </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions </li></ul>
    3. 3. Social Semantic Information Spaces
    4. 4. Motivation (1) <ul><li>How to integrate and search information from different sources? </li></ul>
    5. 5. Motivation (2) <ul><li>How to share and interconnect knowledge in a digital library? </li></ul>
    6. 6.
