Projects

Three examples of Sesame projects:

  • How to find dinosaurs across Europe?
    An infrastructure was created to connect online collections of cultural heritage organizations across Europe. The software works on top of different collection management systems and it generates new virtual collections of objects.
  • Fighting the paper-based "Thesaurus Rex"
    A Sesame-based infrastructure was used to make a large thesaurus - tens of thousands of pages on paper - accessible. Users are given the ability to query and navigate a collection of medical research papers using the thesaurus, while hiding much of the complexity, such as the existence of multiple data sources.
  • "Needle in the haystack"
    Working on top of a file system and a database, Sesame integrates data from both sources. It allows the user to search both sources at once.
Organizations

Some examples of organizations that have implemented Sesame solutions:

  • Pharmaceutical organizations: Disclosure of large medical data sources.
  • Publishers: Finding publications with a thesaurus.
  • Museums: Connect collections of different museums.
  • Governments: Create an open government data infrastructure.
  • Software vendors: Create platforms and tools to explore, mine, present large information collections
