Abstract: Temporal metadata are significant for the management of cultural collections since every object has a historical reference. The goal of this paper is to enrich collection-level descriptions with time representation and management capabilities. We obtain this by deploying a formalism called Multidimensional RDF, which enables the RDF model to represent in a compact way multiple facets of information.
