This year’s edition of the “Cyfrowe spotkania z zabytkami 4” conference was organised with subtitle “Cultural Heritage on the Web: Access and Exchange of Information.”. The conference brought together representatives of various institutions including libraries, museums, archives, humanists and computer science specialists. Conference covered topics related to the standards for information representation (such as CIDOC CRM and LIDO), methods of knowledge acquisition from unconventional sources (e.g. blogs) and also standards for describing iconographic resources. In the context of cartography, a system for geographical localisation of cultural heritage digital resources was presented.
During the conference Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center presented dMuseion – digital museum platform, which is developed by PSNC in cooperation with National Museum in Warsaw. Despite dMuseion is not publicly available yet, it already offers functionality for building digital collections of museum holdings.
