Abstract

When art and technology meet, a huge information flow has to be managed. In the LISTEN project conducted by the Fraunhofer Institut in St. Augustin, we augment every day environments with audio information. In order to distribute and administer this information in an efficient way, we decided to employ an information brokering tool for the management of information items. Furthermore, the generation of user profiles and the personalized presentation of information are possible by this means. This contribution depicts an approach of transferring our information brokering experience to Web museum applications. We show how the LISTEN domain model can easily be extended by an overlay model and adapted to a Web museum environment.
