Establishing Context of Digital Objects' Creation, Content and Usage
Source: Vienna University
The context of objects is essential for the interpretation of information entities, for establishing their authenticity as well as ensuring appropriate use. Thus, documenting the context of creation and use is an essential task in digital library and document management settings, for retrieval tasks as well as for digital preservation. Yet, context is notoriously difficult and labor-some to establish and document, and often missing or partially incomplete or incorrect when it has to be entered manually by the creator of the digital objects.
