Hi Valentine and Robina !
I attach an email I posted on 5 Dec 2013 at the mailing list [log in to unmask]
The same is "reprinted" at the EuropeanaCreative WP2 basecamp, with a bit of discussion by Antoine:
Basically, the idea is that the vocabulary for describing collections can be enriched easily by leveraging manually selected terms with:
- more terms from related dbpedia categories
- more synonyms from other LOD sources, e.g. GND and DDC
