A Linked Data Prototype for the Union Catalog of Digital Archives Taiwan

Linked data paradigm has provided the potential for any data to link or to be linked with structural information, internally and externally. To improve on current cultural service of the Union Catalog of Digital Archives Taiwan (, a linked data prototype is developed and benefited by extending the Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) for a machine-understandable catalog service.

However, knowledge engineering is time and labor consuming, especially for an archive that is non-western based in culture and multidisciplinary in natural. This makes data semantics of the he Union Catalog of Digital Archives Taiwan are extremely challenged for mapping to international standards and vocabularies.

At this stage, the triple store is an experimental addition to the existing Union Catalog of Digital Archives Taiwan architecture, and provides semantic links to target collections for relative suggestions. This will guide us in creating a future technical architecture that is scalable to the whole archive level, compliant with learning by doing guidelines, and preserves the data even that is difficult to be understood fully at present, but at least to be linked by others that may provide third-party’s understandings for their own reuse.
