Abstract
Japan Search, a platform for searching a wide variety of Japanese content ranging from published works, paintings, and cultural assets to broadcast programs and movies, is scheduled to be officially released in August, 2020. At the short paper session and Best Practice Day presentation of DC-2019, the National Diet Library of Japan, which developed the systems to operate Japan Search, explained the essentials of the project and gave an introduction to the Japan Search RDF schema, which was designed based on the RDF model with the aim of facilitating the distribution and sharing of metadata. This presentation is intended for librarians and those who are involved with cultural heritage, and will cover the recent improvements made to the schema, with a focus on methods taken to describe information on the access to and use of content as well as information on the provenance of metadata. A demonstration of how metadata from institutions participating in Japan Search are gathered by institutions which act as data aggregators and then transferred to Japan Search is also to be provided.
