Abstract

In conventional digital archive systems, different archives tend to be created if the types or series of materials are different. In this study, an integrated digital archive system has been developed to aggregate all types or series of materials into one archive. An archive is built and operated with a function to visualize a variety of relationships between the aggregated materials through the utilization of ontology as well as a community function that enables the users to feed back various information about the materials
