The application of concept lattices to digital museum collection management and access

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • This project trials the application of concept lattices to digital museum collections. It will test the potential of the concept lattice to provide new ways to map and annotate collection resources as a structured, associative network, thereby opening new possibilities in collection management and access, including capturing intangible cultural heritage material. The project explores options for the effective visualisation of, and interaction with, this network. The research is being undertaken as a partnership between the University of Wollongong, where the concept lattice technology has been developed, and the Australian Museum, drawing on its South Pacific collections for this pilot project.
