dc.description.abstract The encyclopedia of Iranian architectural history was established with the goal of increasing the accessibility of the widespread resources and documents related to Iranian architectural history and to provide a better and more productive space for collaboration of researchers and scholars, enabling them to expand and improve this encyclopedia. The Infrastructure which is designed is a three level structure. We have a knowledge representation level on the top, an ontology of Iranian architectural history, a conceptual model designed for this specific area of study and The middle level is the mediator level which is responsible for establishing the relation between concepts and documents and enhancing search and semantic interoperability and The underlying level is a digital repository; a localized and customized version of Dspace institutional repository. The main changes that we made to Dspace was implementing the Persian calendar (a.k.a Jalali calendar) and fixing the correct representation of Persian numerals. We've also translated all the messages into Persian and changed the JSPUI for a correct view of page containing right-to-left text. A team of librarians in EIAH reviewed the work-flows and based on their feedback, some changes are made to the way the metadata appears for each item and the way work-flows progress. Using our EIAH Metadata standards we have our own Application Profile based on Dublin Core embedded in Dspace for describing the documents available in the history of Iranian architecture. Our Development plan for Dspace includes: A book viewer A customized search engine (lucene based) Federated search on multiple Dspace installations in national cultural heritage centers Establishing a connection between Semantic Mediawiki and Dspace through OAI-PMH Thumbnail generator for different text document formats Packaging Dspace for Redhat based systems Development of our Application profile based on Singapore framework for DCAP. en_US
