Bemerkung: Special Issue: Semantic Web
This article provides an overview about the Semantic Web, its importance and history and an overview of recent Semantic Web Technologies which can be used to enhance Digital Libraries. The paper answers, at least partially, questions like 'What is the Semantic Web?', 'How could the Semantic Web look like?', 'Why is the Semantic Web important?', 'What are Ontologies?' and 'Where are we now?'. Several pointers to further literature and web sites complete the overview. We point out that Semantic Web Technologies are valuable add-ons for Digital Libraries. There already exist numerous academic and commercial tools which can be applied right now. The article is of particular value for newcomers in this area.
