This paper presents the results of digitization of the Libertini Collection of the Museum of Archaeology of the University of Catania (MAUC). The digitization project aims at defining forms of long-term preservation of digital data associated with sites and objects of cultural interest exploiting the Linked Open Data (LOD) paradigm and, more specifically, the Web Ontology Language (OWL), that is the standard language for representing web ontologies and digital tools designed for describing resources of various domains of knowledge. Such an approach provides a high level of expressiveness along with automatic reasoning tools, which allows the interested user to obtain a more comprehensive and efficient form of digital research.

Abstract

This paper presents the results of digitization of the Libertini Collection of the Museum of Archaeology of the University of Catania (MAUC). The digitization project aims at defining forms of long-term preservation of digital data associated with sites and objects of cultural interest exploiting the Linked Open Data (LOD) paradigm and, more specifically, the Web Ontology Language (OWL), that is the standard language for representing web ontologies and digital tools designed for describing resources of various domains of knowledge. Such an approach provides a high level of expressiveness along with automatic reasoning tools, which allows the interested user to obtain a more comprehensive and efficient form of digital research.
