Publication Abstract

This workshop will bring together experts from European and North American iSchools and projects developing large-scale digital cultural heritage collections. It will provide a forum for examining conceptual and practical aspects of “collections” and the context they provide in the digital environment, in relation to the information needs of scholars, roles of cultural institutions, and international interoperability. One-page position papers submitted by each panelist will be distributed to participants in advance of the workshop along with a whitepaper entitled “Modeling Cultural Collections for Digital Aggregation and Exchange Environments” under development by a team of researchers at Europeana and the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship. The workshop will be divided into two sessions, each including a panel of experts and a set of breakout discussions.
