The use of CRM Core in Multimedia Annotation

Cultural heritage institutions are fantastic resources of multimedia content. Rich metadata structures, able to capture the diversity of the media, the subject matter and the context around each information asset, are required to make this content accessible. This paper describes how the CIDOC CRM Core format can be used to structure cultural heritage metadata for multimedia by making the appropriate abstractions to reconstruct and exploit relevant parts of the historical context for rich associative resource retrieval.
