Your terminology as a part of the semantic webrecommendations for design and management (PDF, 2.5MB)

This publication, edited by Linked Heritage WP3 and ATHENA WP4 “Terminology and multilingualism”, aims in priority at people working in European museums, experts or non-experts in Information Engineering and/or Linguistics, who have an interest on terminology and multilingualism. It proposes recommendations helping you to manage your terminology, to make it compliant and optimized for improving multilinguality on Europeana and to make it as a part of the Semantic Web following. The more you respect them, the more you improve the future retrievability of your digital collections online.

The French translation is also available:
