Final Report - BRICKS (Building Resources for Integrated Cultural Knowledge Services)

Project ID: 507457
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

This report presents the work performed during the fourth and last semester of the 'Building resources for integrated cultural knowledge service' (Bricks) project. The vision behind this EC-backed initiative was the development of an integrated system offering advanced functionalities for a new generation of digital libraries.

From closed 'silos' that store the richness of Europe's history and linguistic diversity, digital library systems could evolve into gateways enabling access to other collections. The periodic report describes the technological infrastructure developed to ensure accessibility to a huge range of content, from simple text documents to complex three-dimensional information.

The technologies developed during the course of the project constitute the basis for the creation of an open-source developers community and setting up the Bricks cultural heritage network. These initiatives which have paved the way towards 'Bricks-after-Bricks' complete the list of the project's key results summarised in this document.
