Cultural Heritage (CH) is a vast domain, where sharing information is challenging. As a result, the global CH is distributed and heterogeneous. In this paper, we present the concept of the Web of Data as an approach to integrating CH collections. We introduce the CHoWDer (Cultural Heritage on the Web of Data) model, the simple model designed to illustrate how easily CH institutions can participate in the Linked Data initiative.
