This deliverable provides an overview of current practice regarding knowledge representation in the cultural heritage domain. It does so by providing an overview of the metadata schemas and controlled vocabularies that are widely used in the cultural heritage sector. An overview of current practice is gathered from: • the cultural heritage partners in the project; • cultural heritage institutes throughout Europe; • work done within other (research) projects. More generic knowledge representation standards and the use of the Semantic Web within the project are outlined. This overview provides insight into the metadata schemas and controlled vocabularies MultiMatch might have to deal with and build upon. The deliverable concludes with a first analysis of the most important schemas and reference models together with a preliminary outline of their possible usability in the MultiMatch project.
