"L’ontologia Cultural-ON, realizzata nell’ambito di una Convenzione tra il MIBACT e l’Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologie della Cognizione del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (ISTC-CNR), ha lo scopo di modellare i dati che caratterizzano gli istituti e i luoghi della cultura, come ad esempio i dati sugli enti o sulle persone che hanno un determinato ruolo sugli istituti e luoghi della cultura, le sedi fisiche dei luoghi, i contatti, eventuali materiali multimediali che descrivono un istituto e luogo della cultura e ogni altra informazione utile al pubblico per poter accedere all’istituto

"The ontology aims at modelling the data on cultural institutes or sites such as data regarding the agents that play a specific role on cultural institutes or sites, the sites themselves, the contact points, all multimedia files which describe the cultural institute or site and any other information useful to the public in order to access the institute or site. Moreover, the ontology represents events that can take place in specific cultural institutes or sites. The following figure illustrates some of the core elements of the ontology.

DoGi Classificazione delle materie giuridiche

[utilizzata a partire dal pubblicato 2000]

"This is the translated text of a number of notations of the DoGi classification system. It reflects the structure of the Italian law and by no means is a comparison between civil and common law families' concepts. Only main entries have been translated into English as a vehicular language, to allow foreign users to identify the broad categories of the Italian law. Where no functional equivalents have been found, entries have not been translated. This is a work in progress and it will be updated on a continuing basis."

EAGLE Vocabulary - Dating Criteria

"The common use among Members of the BPN is to insert, when this information is available two dates. A 'Not before' and 'Not after' dates. This is still a best practice and has been preserved as such in any encoding. There are nevertheless divergences on historical periods and indeed in the way computations are done. In many cases only a generic date is possible.

EAGLE Vocabulary - Decoration

"Terms in this vocabulary refer to any decoration surrounding an inscription. Hederae, crosses, and chi-rho monograms are probably among the most frequent decorations, but there are a number of classifiable features of decoration which support and are indeed vital in some cases, to the understanding of the inscribed text. Many artistic classification could be suggested, but for the purposes of epi- graphic research we offer a flat list of features which can be found surrounding an inscription."
