CLIO-MITOS: semantic system of documenting cultural information

The CLIO-MITOS system was developed by the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) within the framework of the European programs STRIDE (1992-1993) and POLEMON (EPET II, 1995-1997). CLIO-MITOS is an eight-centred system of documenting cultural information that uses the semantic data model SIS. Its characteristic feature is the open and dynamically developing structure of the data that provides the user with the possibility of specialising the data entered.

The MITOS-CMDB system was developed to cover Museum curators’ need to manage the artefacts in their collections electronically. A project in the framework of the POLEMON program (EPET II, 1995-1997), it was developed in prototype form.

Electronic documentation system for Museums CDS-ISIS

CDS-ISIS, the Canadian electronic documentation system for museums was configured and was used, which was used in 1991 for the electronic documentation of the Library and the documentation of the Museum’s collection of paintings, drawings and prints.
