The EDM Model

The Europeana (European Digital Library) currently finalizes its schema for the next release to be implemented in 2011 the so-called EDM Model. EDM includes some concepts from ORE and from Dublin Core. It denotes its own namespace as ens:. It includes in its own namespace a series of concepts from the CIDOC CRM and generalizations over CIDOC CRM concept for the purpose of highly general queries against a large body of data. We have created in a graphical form a first draft of a mapping from CRM-FRBRoo to EDM and the Dublin Core properties it reuses. This mapping is complete - except for some CRM properties about structuring time and space EDM does not deal with or has not developed yet.
