The Data Aggregation Lab Software
This paper describes the Data Aggregation Lab software tool, which implements the metadata aggregation workflow of Cultural Heritage, based on semantic technologies. It aims to provide a framework to support several aspects of our research, such as conducting case studies, provide reference implementations, and support technology adoption. Currently, it provides working implementations of data aggregation methods with which Europeana research has obtained positive results. These methods explore technologies such as linked data, Schema.org, IIIF, Sitemaps and RDF.
