Mapping OA Entry to RDF

The mapping of the OA Entry (i.e. Scheda OA), the Italian most general content standard for cataloguing works of art, to RDF is based upon a subset of cataloguing elements described in the version 3.00 of the aforementioned standard, released in February 2014 by the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione (ICCD)

Although the OA Entry may be mainly considered a national cataloguing reference, also international stakeholders can benefit from this mapping document, which is a set of shareable descriptive elements for works of art.

The purpose of this mapping is indeed to ensure semantic interoperability among data providers wanting to publish their structured data about works of art in RDF as Linked Open Data.

Therefore, this document provides a guidance to map metadata elements name to ontology terms as defined in well-known vocabularies, e.g., the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM), and by means of ontologies that have been appropriately developed for describing specific aspects of the OA Entry standard.
