Muruca is a collection of Open Source applications to create, manage and run Semantic Digital Libraries.
Muruca tools are natively built for dealing with Linked Open Data, Open Access content and Semantic Web technologies.
To know more about Muruca start with understanding our vision of electronic publishing and digital libraries, then go on reading about each component in the About page.


One of Net7 mission is to promote research and disseminate knowledge by making available for free online digital reproductions of materials in the humanities.
Since 2001 Net7 is involved in many European projects as a technical partner expert in digital humanities.


DM2E is a European Commission funded project that aims to technically enable as many content providers as possible to integrate their content into Europeana, and to facilitate the re-use of Linked Open Metadata in teaching and research.
It will develop a suite of tools to this end, as well as building a community around open cultural heritage data through the Open GLAM initiative.


Current scholarship in philosophy takes place in a context of revolutionary change in accessibility and availability of resources. The Internet and the fast-growing number of digital archives and repositories makes an ever-increasing number of philosophical texts more available. Material which was difficult to access and to include in scholarship has become more accessible to a larger public and has opened up new avenues of scholarship.
At the same time, we face real challenges on two fronts. The first of these is to safeguard this new enlarged accessibility of resources, and to ensure that ‘Open Access’ is not limited by technical issues or commercial interests. The second is to fulfill the potential of new modes of scholarship offered by digital publication and digital repositories.
The AGORA project aims to address these challenges by: building on existing Open Access resources, primarily Philosource, extending Open Access to secondary literature and creating new Open Access resources, and exploring different ways of enhancing these open access resources through a series of experiments relating to: New models of open peer review, advanced scholarly semantic linking and contextual linking, Linked Open Data, Open Access business models Through these experiments, the AGORA project aims to establish guidelines for best practice in Open Access relating to philosophical scholarship.
The AGORA project is funded by the European Union within the framework of competitiveness and innovation.


SemLib is a 24th month R&D project supported by EU FP7 Theme: Research for SMEs (no. FP7-SME-2010-01-262301-SEMLIB) commenced in January 2011. SemLib will produce three components that will be integrated into the SME products: a Tool to export existing metadata in RDF and publish it as Linked Data (Web of Data); a Semantic Annotation System, to exploit user-generated RDF metadata and publish it as Linked Data; a Semantic Recommender System, to use Linked Data to improve searching and browsing in the DLs.
