Informationswissenschaftliche Herausforderungen für kulturelle Gedächtnisorganisationen Thomas Tunsch EVA 2012 Berlin German 7 November 2012 At the beginning of digitization museums tried to achieve comparable data by means of strict rules. The orientation to the structures and concepts of different disciplines could thereby result in limitations of interdisciplinary collaboration.

New communication structures in the World Wide Web, the Web 2.0, and the progress in the standardization of information on cultural heritage are the foundation for the development of semantic data models and the interdisciplinary communication. In this connection the intensive cooperation between experts of different disciplines by means of information science is necessary. It is also essential to agree on common terms, which can often be achieved only through continuous communication reflecting the specific knowledge in different fields of expertise.

Semantic data models are becoming more and more important for museums, especially in the collection and use of extrinsic information about museum objects, because only the reliable representation of the existing specialized information and their general accessibility enables the scholarly debate on a high level.

May 2012 Wikipedia came into being in cyberspace. Its early years were marked by asynchronous work by users located all over the world who hardly ever related on a personal level outside the net. With time, some of the volunteers met at what were called wikimeetups, encounters initially aimed at tightening bonds which did not bring about any direct improvement to the project content. Face-to-face initiatives later took place that involved not just volunteers but also cultural entities. The most recent event and the one with the greatest impact was Wiki Loves Monuments 2011, a competition to photograph monuments in 18 European countries, including Spain. The high level of participation led to 160,000 photographs of monuments being taken, with Spain occupying the third place in terms of number of photographs. In this paper we explore the origins, implementation, development and results of Wiki Loves Monuments. The success of the 2011 edition and requests from other countries has led to organization of Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, which will be held at the global level. 3 0
