abstract= {The British Museum's Linked Data and SPARQL service provides access to the same collection records available through the Museum's web presented Collection Online, but in a computer readable format. The use of the W3C open data standard, RDF, allows the Museum's collection data to join and relate to a growing body of linked data published by other organisations around the world interested in promoting accessibility and collaboration.

The data has also been organised using the CIDOC CRM (Conceptual Reference Model) crucial for harmonising with other cultural heritage data. The CIDOC CRM represents British Museum's data completely and, unlike other standards that fit data into a common set of data fields, all of the meaning contained in the Museum's source data is retained. This represents the only way in which museums can represent all their specialist and localised knowledge, essential for serious research, but also support highly precise cross organisational data discovery and semantic relationships.
