At the summit, the first results of an ongoing collaborative work - CASRAI Profiles in CERIF – undertaken by Thorsten Höllrigl (AVEDAS), Brigitte Jörg (JISC ISC, UKOLN; euroCRIS) and David Baker (CASRAI; euroCRIS) were presented. Following a default business setup, the first steps of a CASRAI to CERIF mapping are done – directed by and guided through the CASRAI Profiles as available from the online Dictionary.
Transforming a CASRAI profile into CERIF requires at first the selection of CERIF entities (1), these indicate the context that a CASRAI profile covers (2).
As to CERIF, any dictionary or vocabulary terms are maintained in the so-called CERIF Semantic Layer; it encourages the use of multiple vocabularies.
The CASRAI/CERIF mappings are being continued and you will find more here, soon.
