WP4 | The survey
• Started the 20th of March
• Aim: collect information about terminology resources used
by the museums for describing their collections
• One form per terminology
• All kinds of terminology resources (terminologies, thesauri,
classifications, …)
• Description of in-house resources and international
resources as well
WP4 | The survey
7 main sections
 Basic information and contact details for the
terminology
 Organisation's website (particularly any multilinguality)
 Detailed information about the terminology
 Use of the terminology
 Multilinguality of the terminology
 Availability of the terminology
 Audience for the terminology
WP4 | The survey
Results:
• 68 forms filled in on line
• 16 countries have answered (over 20 + 3)
• 1 country (Cyprus) does not use terminology resources at all
• 7 countries have declared only one terminology
• Mainly for the use of museums professionnals and users and
Higher education students
WP4 | The survey
Figures calculation rules:
• Basis of % = non-skipped answers
• Reliability:
• *** good: skipped answers / non-skipped < 15 %
• ** medium: 15% < sa / nsa < 30%
• * bad: sa / nsa > 30%
WP4 | The survey
Some figures:
• 43 % = multilingual (***)
• 67 % = SKOS compliant (*)
• 50 % = DC compliant (***)
• 16 % = RDF compliant (*)
• 38 % = Thesaurus (***)
• major feature= broader/narrower term (61%) (*)
related term (42%) (*)
top term (58%) (*)

• Thought Lab (University of Amsterdam)
• EuropeanaLocal : results from the survey
• EuropeanaConnect:
– Clustergroup meeting for technical WP
– Contact with Worpackage leaders :
• WP1 (terminology): Stefan Gradmann
• WP2 (multilinguality) : Vivien Petras
WP4 | The survey
Current actions (summer):
• to re-contact mute countries
• to check with one-terminology-countries if it is over
• to ask precisions for skipped questions (to improve reliability)
• to gather information from other surveys and projects
• to consolidate the statistics
• to produce a qualitative study
• to finalize the D4.1
Draft Plan for the D4.1
I/ Introduction
• Objective and goals
II/ Remarks
• Methodology and types of terminologies
III/ State of the art (terminology resources)
• Presentation
Draft Plan for the D4.1
IV/ Inventory and description of the existing resources
• Presentation of the sources of information
• WP3 survey (presentation/results)
• EuropeanaLocal survey
• Minerva network
• European projects (Europeana, Europeana Group projects and other
European projects)
• WP4 Survey
Draft Plan for the D4.1
V/ Conclusions
• Global Synthesis of the whole survey results
• Work proposal for establishing recommendations toward museums
VI/ Annexes
• Terminology resources survey
• List of resources
• List of institutions
• Feedabck from each other European project
SKOSification of Terminologies
SKOS – Simple Knowledge Organization System
W3C Recommendation
Express terminologies in an special RDF Schema
Close to WP1/WP2 of EuropeanaConnect
Semi- Automatic Tools
SKOS Simple Knowledge ORGANIZATION SYSTEM
concepts are documented, linked, merged with other data,
integrated and published on the Web
composed,
CONCEPTS identified by URIs using RDF triples
natural language expressions to refer to
concepts:
skos: prefLabel [descriptor]
skos: altLabel
[synonims, acronyms, abbreviations]
SEMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS
…broader and narrower concepts
broader/narrower relationships assert that a concept
is broader/narrower in meaning
SCHEMES
compiled sets of concepts: ConceptScheme class and
inScheme relationship to link a
concept to a scheme hasTopConcept
relationship for the entry points of narrower/broader hierarchy
LINK schemes map concepts from different schemes using the properties
exactMatch, broadMatch, narrowMatch and relatedMatch

WP4 | SKOS
WP4 | Standards and
SKOSification
Coming actions:
• Identification of terminology production/managing tool (e.g.
ThManager)
• Identification of a limited area
• Selection of 3 languages (minimum)
• First version of a common Athena terminology in SKOS
• Set up of a Web access to the mapping tool (WP7?)
• Iterative refinement by enlargement of test domains
WP4 | Agenda
Many dates
• D4.1: delivery of first results to the commission (1st
September)
• Multilinguality workshop of EuropeanaConnect (Trento, 9th
September) (WP leaders)
• First version of the Athena terminology (on the area
defined) (by the end of 2009)
