Community Reusable Human and Machine Understandable Content Models for Small Museums and Non Technical Scholars


Humanities scholars and small museums willing to digitized their research projects can accomplish it by using existing open source platforms and without the need of hiring a computer specialist. However, this process usually involves a steep learning curve, and a significant amount of time that generally humanities scholars do not have.

Furthermore, they rarely take the extra step to embed structured data (Semantics) on their online projects, and their research is often stored in isolated data silos .

We aim to develop Community Reusable Semantic Metadata Content Models (RM’s). The models will be a collection of reusable elements which taken together satisfy a particular case related to Cultural Heritage institutions. Examples: a) Numismatic Collections b) Photographic Collections c) Works of Art Collections d) Ancient Graffiti Collections, and so forth. It would be sufficient to package, reuse and improve this functionality once and reuse it again and share it with others in a larger community.

Why Community Reusable Semantic Metadata Content Models (RM’s)

It can be set up and operated by non-developer’s non-technical scholars and small museums without any technical knowledge.

Why not on Drupal.org Website

Drupal.org it is an excellent platform to share the work to the Drupal community. However, it is not always enough.

There is an enormous volume of the grid Drupal work that it is not on Drupal.org a good example is our community that focus mostly for humanities scholars and small museums. Drupal projects are focus mostly on general audience, usually not suitable for specific use-case.
