There's already a lot going on
The RNA project cases provide a varied and representative overview of urgent questions concerning knowledge sharing to which many knowledge institutions are trying to find an answer.
The RNA project links these cases to a number of proposals for solutions that have already proven themselves in actual practice, but have not yet or hardly been related to each other, or have not been applied so far to the field of (in particular) cultural heritage.
- The Legermuseum (Army Museum) has initiated a knowledge site that has made an enormous amount of information available in the shape of articles and object descriptions in a short time.
- Naturalis has become a pioneer in knowledge networking by rearranging and linking its proprietary knowledge and by building large knowledge networks in conjunction with other organisations.
- The Rijksdienst voor Oudheidkundig Bodemonderzoek (National Service for Archaeology, Cultural Landscape and Built Heritage) is the initiator of the Nationale Referentiecollectie NRc, a digitally consultable knowledge system of archaeological typology.
- A number of cultural heritage institutions Groningen intends to link regional information and make it available to various target groups.
- The nineteenth-century scientific work of De Clercq and Schmeltz forms an early example of object descriptions and reference structures.
- The Dutch Libraries are currently engaged in making extremely diverse practical information findeable using modern web technology.
