Cultural heritage institutions such as archives, libraries, and museums have the mission of curating and
safeguarding societal memories. The patrimonialization and curatorial processes developed by such
institutions are continuous value-adding activities. Such institutions are beginning to publish their collections
as digital objects on the Web. The representation and publication of cultural heritage records as digital objects
using LOD—linked open data—technologies is a new step in patrimonialization and curatorial practices.
Many collections are thematically superimposed, complementary, and have synergy. These collections often
present culturally relevant relationships between their objects, like a book about a painting or a draft or sketch
of a famous painting, etc. This research aims at characterizing such culturally relevant relationships, compiling
an inventory, and organizing them in a vocabulary. The implementation of semantic links using LOD
technologies can achieve interoperability between digital collections and improve the usability of digital
collections, thus empowering heritage institutions.
