This chapter explores how contextual information frameworks can be used to pass knowledge from one generation to the next. The Internet has turned the creation and curation of digital cultural heritage resources into a major cultural force and enabled the linking and sharing of information. One of the major challenges in the creation and curation of digital cultural heritage resources is how the resources can be utilized by future generations in a manner that can mitigate both media redundancy and epistemic failure. The chapter considers ways in which the elements of the cultural heritage knowledge base might be managed in the future and also looks at threats to effective knowledge transfer before concluding with a discussion of open information systems and security.

Keywords:   contextual information frameworks, digital cultural heritage, curation, media redundancy, epistemic failure, knowledge base, knowledge transfer, open information systems, security
