Abstract

The ROSSIO Infrastructure aims at aggregating, organis-ing and contextualising digital objects whose metadata descriptions areprovided by a consortium of Portuguese academic, public andprivatesector institutions in the domains of social sciences, artsand humanities.ROSSIO is the Portuguese representative of DARIAH, the Europeanresearch infrastructure for arts and humanities. A platform is being de-veloped to provide search and content curation services forresearchersand the general public, namely digital collections, digital exhibitions anda virtual research environment. The ROSSIO Thesaurus is being devel-oped to support content discovery and management in the platform. Thethesaurus is being modelled as a SKOS concept scheme, and it leverageson existing unstructured vocabularies, such as subject headings and the-sauri, produced by the ROSSIO data providers. This paper describes themodelling process of the ROSSIO Thesaurus, its integrationand role inthe infrastructure, its publication as Linked Open Data, and the resultsof this work after 6 months of development.
