=== Background and Current Practice ===

The Flemish Archipel Project is focussed to provide access and long term
archiving of digitized material from a diverse set of memory institutions.
Libraries, archival institutions, the art sector (museums) and broadcasters
contribute content to a network of repositories. One of the challenges
is the domain-specific metadata models that are used in each sector, e.g,
MARC, CDWA, SPECTRUM, P/META, etc. The current practice is to Dublin Core
as a common ground for managing the metadata, and provide mappings from
the domain-specific models. If all these models would be available as
Linked Data these mappings could be better formalized and  tested.

=== Goal ===

(1) Provide a common search interface on all the domain-specific metadata models.

(2) Start with a basic Dublin Core model, add more enhanced search/indexing
functionality by adding Linked Data mappings of domain models.

=== Target Audience ===

Scholars, general public, service providers

=== Use Case Scenario ===

End users executes a search in the system: find all digitized material of
"Henry van de Velde" published between 1880 and 1920. The system knows the
difference between a creator "Henry van de Velde" and material about "Henry
van de Velde" and how this is translated in the domain-specific metadata models.
The system should return all material matching this query.
