An experiment to work toward Darwin Core modeling of zooarchaeology for interoperability with VertNet
Please note, this is only a draft abstract and it will be revised and replaced heavily!
In relating these zooarchaeological data with a wider bioinformatics community, this experiment provides a basis for developing "ZooarchNet", a collaborative data-sharing initiative led y Dr. Kitty Emery, Associate Curator, with the Florida Museum of Natural History. She intends ZooarchNet to become a digital environmental archaeology portal that focuses on mobilizing zooarchaeological specimen-level data using tools pioneered for publishing biological and paleontological data, while also creating persistent links to, and among, open-data archaeological repositories.
By doing so, ZooarchNet will facilitate data interoperability across a growing network of information resources spanning multiple disciplines, creating a foundation for integrative big-data research at the interface of archaeology and biology, and opening the door to the development of distributed data networking in archaeology.

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.
The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
