Semantic annotation and search of virtual collections
Abstract: "In this talk we present ongoing work on exploiting Semantic Web techniques to support searching
and annotating large cross-institutional digital-heritage collections in he context of the Europeana effort. We discuss research issues w.r.t. metadata organization, semantics metadata enrichment as well as semantic search techniques of the resulting graph. We show some results through an open-source Web demonstrator"
