Digital Cultural Heritage China
The lead organisation in China is Peking University through its School of Arts. The museum sector is represented by the National Museum of China, the library sector by CADAL, the China Academic Digital Associative Library, funded by the State under the Ministry of Education “to build academic digital libraries with advance technology, with massive multi-disciplinary, multi-type, multi-lingual digital resources.” Linked Data samples from CADAL will be virtually integrated with CLAROS and ResearchSpace. Linked Data samples may also become available for Dunhuang, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which has experience of collaboration across a broad spectrum of heritage interests with, for example, the British Library (International Dunhuang Project) and the Getty Trust (Digital Dunhuang).
