Short description:

DIVE+ is an event-centric linked data digital collection browser aimed to provide an integrated and interactive access to multimedia objects from various heterogeneous online collections. It enriches the structured metadata of online collections with linked open data vocabularies with focus on events, people, locations and concepts that are depicted or associated with particular collection objects. DIVE+ is result of a true inter-disciplinary collaboration between computer scientists, humanities scholars, cultural heritage professionals and interaction designers. The tool allows humanities scholars to explore unexpected relations between entities and media objects and to construct and share navigation paths to develop research narratives.

Long description:

Research in the context of CLARIAH indicates that humanities scholars need four main steps to describe their research: exploration, assembly, analysis and presentation. The exploration stage is critical for defining the research questions as it covers a throughout analysis and study of background materials for developing the research question, as well as initial information gathering. For this purpose, DIVE+ supports this exploration stage of humanities research DIVE+ is an event-centric linked data digital collection browser aimed to provide an integrated and interactive access to multimedia objects from various heterogeneous online collections. It enriches the structured metadata of online collections with linked open data vocabularies with focus on events, people, locations and concepts that are depicted or associated with particular collection objects. DIVE+ is result of a true inter-disciplinary collaboration between computer scientists, humanities scholars, cultural heritage professionals and interaction designers. The tool allows humanities scholars to explore unexpected relations between entities and media objects and to construct and share navigation paths to develop research narratives. Currently, content from four cultural heritage institutions are made available through the DIVE+ SPARQL interface, on top of which an innovative event-centric user interface is implemented: – Dutch news broadcasts (1920-1980) from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (NISV) – ANP Radio News Bulletins (1937-1955) from the Dutch National Library – Cultural heritage objects (1950-1980) from the Amsterdam Museum (AM) – Cultural heritage objects (1950-1980) from the Tropenmuseum Additionally, in the DIVE+ triple store we extended the existing cultural heritage linked data cloud with an automatic alignment of the enriched metadata from the above collections with various structured vocabularies, e.g., Gemeenschappelijke Thesaurus Audiovisuele Archieven (GTAA) and Amsterdam Museum Thesaurus, Persons list, Geo vocabulary, Stichting Volkenkundige Collectie Nederland (SVCN). Thus, the collections made available are interlinked in a common linked data network of events, persons, places and concepts, which provides context for browsing and exploration of the cultural heritage objects.
