Abstract

The “Digital Heritage: Spotlight on Europe” column examines technological advances internal and external to cultural institutions. The digital shift changed radically how cultural heritage is made, disseminated, distributed, accessed, consumed, and monetized. One of the most important revolutions is that the user's role changed dramatically, shifting from passive observers to active participants and content producers with many new and exciting opportunities for engagement, creative use, and access. The strength of the column is its broad, international focus, and contributors are encouraged to explore issues and recent advances in digital heritage theories, methodologies, standards relevant to the European region, as well as the larger, global audience. Interested authors are invited to submit proposals and articles to the column editor at annamaria.tammaro@unipr.it. Please include “ILLR submission” in the subject line of the e-mail. Research on historical bookbindings has suffered both for reasons internal to the discipline and external. Internally, the almost exclusive focus on decorated bindings has hindered the development of methodologies to describe any kind of bookbinding, which externally, in turn, has impeded cataloguers from describing these objects—their structures in particular—creating a vicious circle in the production of resources on bookbindings. After having analyzed the state of the art of bookbinding resources, we propose that the implementation of semantic web technologies may offer a way to break the bookbinding resource vicious circle.
