Informationswissenschaftliche Herausforderungen für kulturelle Gedächtnisorganisationen Museum
Web 2.0
Semantic web
Data model
Cultural heritage
Collaborative community
Vernetzte Arbeitsgemeinschaft
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.

Kommunikation für Experten: Kulturelle Gedächtnisorganisationen und vernetzte Arbeitsgemeinschaften Web 2.0
EVA 2011 Berlin German 9 November 2011 Being a part of contemporary culture collaborative communities gain more and more importance for cultural memory organizations as well. Through this it becomes evident that these organizations not only serve as storage or to guarantee conservation but also shape cultural history and its perception. At the same time collaborative communities are using cultural memory organizations as sources and for reference.

Cultural memory organizations are shaped by experts from various disciplines in their structure and effectiveness significantly. Therefore collaborative communities are becoming more important for experts and their communication network.

Collaborative communities are partially employing new ways and methods to organize knowledge, which are often less known in cultural memory organizations and are therefore rejected or considered transitory trends. However both cultural memory organizations and collaborative communities rely on the acceptance of society and need their results to be trusted by the members of society.

Die Schöne und das Tier: Semantic Web und Wikis EVA 2008 Berlin German 12 November 2008 Although to a large extent the Semantic Web specifies fundamentals and future potentials of the WWW, it is associated with current projects as well. With standards like the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model for the domain of cultural heritage, main principles for the semantic network are available already today.

In contrast, Wikis seem to exemplify the danger of subjectivity and absence of verification for many experts in museums, especially due to general participation beyond traditional areas of expertise.

Semantic MediaWiki is an effective tool for converting seeming contradictions into a prolific challenge for forward-looking international collaboration.

Museen und Wikis: Vorteile vernetzter Arbeitsgemeinschaften MAI-Tagung ("museums and the internet") German 26 May 2008 Obwohl Wikipedia mittlerweile große Aufmerksamkeit in den Medien genießt und als Phänomen des Web 2.0 zunehmend auch Gegenstand wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen ist, sind vernetzte Arbeitsgemeinschaften in der Welt der Museen noch weitgehend unbekannt. Während in Universitäten und Bibliotheken Wikis teilweise schon zum Bestandteil der internen und externen Kommunikation geworden sind, scheint die Idee des „schnellen Wissens“ in den Museen bisher nur wenig Widerhall zu finden. Für die Nutzung von Wikis in Museen bieten sich verschiedene Möglichkeiten an, deren Vorteile und Grenzen beschrieben werden sollen. 0 0
Museen und Wikipedia Wikipedia
EVA 2007 Berlin German 7 November 2007 In order to define the possible advantages of utilization and cooperation, both the museum world and the Wikipedia world can be considered communities dedicated to the expansion of knowledge. Museums collect objects, provide documentation and produce knowledge about those objects and the representing fields of sciences or other scholarship. Wikipedia collects data and information pieces, provides articles, and at the same time offers insight into the process of how knowledge grows. Especially the following areas demonstrate important connections:

methods (discussion, conventions, manuals, standards) practical experience (authors, stable knowledge/process) content (metadata, SWD, PND, templates, structure, quality management, languages) contributors and users (museum staff, visitors, public)

As a possible alternative or extension of using Wikipedia the project “MuseumsWiki” shall be demonstrated.

Museum Documentation and Possibilities, opportunities and advantages for scholars and museums Wikipedia
J. Trant and D. Bearman (eds). Museums and the Web 2007: Proceedings. Toronto: Archives & Museum Informatics English 31 March 2007 The importance of Wikipedia for the documentation and promotion of museum holdings is gaining acceptance, and the number of references to articles is growing. However, the museum world still pays little attention to the Wikipedia project as a collaborative community with intentions, structures, and special features. Although these observations are based on museums in Germany and focus on the German Wikipedia, they are just as important and applicable to other museums and other editions of Wikipedia. Universities and libraries have already taken advantage of the Wikipedia and have established functional links. In that the mission of museums is closely related to that of universities and libraries, the value of Wikipedia for museum professionals is worthy of consideration. This paper provides the complete study to serve as reference for the selected topics to be discussed in the professional forum. 0 0
