Slides for the presentation given at the MTSR 2016 conference in Gottingen, Germany for the paper "Exploring Audiovisual Archives through Aligned Thesauri" by Victor de Boer, Matthias Priem, Michiel Hildebrand, Nico Verplancke, Arjen de Vries, and Johan Oomen.
In this paper, we present a case study where partial
collections of two audiovisual archives (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and VIAA) are connected by aligning their thesauri. We report on the conversion of one of the thesauri to SKOS and on the subsequent application of an interactive alignment tool CultuurLINK. Finally, we introduce an cross-collection browser which uses the produced alignment to allow users to explore connections between the two collections.
