The present collection deals with the application of modern information
technology, especially semantic web technologies, to the problems of
representing cultural content in real and virtual museums. The Semantic
Web is the attempt to make the World Wide Web’s enormous mass of
information more accessible to humans by using forms of representation
which are semantically transparent and therefore `understandable‘ to
machines assisting human users when they access the web. The fascinating
perspectives for museology which result from the new semantic techniques
are dealt with in the present book.
