Dear All

Following the decisions of the current working group meeting, we invite 
you to vote if you accept   the introductory text for the “Use and 
Learn” section of the CRM site

The text is the following:

How can I use the CIDOC CRM?

The CIDOC CRM is, first of all, an intellectual system for organizing 
and integrating cultural heritage data. This system is officially 
expressed in specification documents. These documents are available in 
the resource section of this website. These are the official reference 
documents for the CIDOC CRM and are actively maintained by the CIDOC CRM 
SIG and updated according to user needs and the organic growth of the 
Using CIDOC CRM in practical data integration scenarios can be achieved 
in a number of ways. In a common scenario it can be implemented in RDF 
or OWL based knowledge bases; alternatively, it can be used to enable 
the implementation of cross database query interpreters. It can also be 
used as an intellectual guide in order to build more effective 
traditional relational databases.
In order to begin the adoption of CIDOC CRM in different use scenarios, 
potential adopters are encouraged to consult the tutorials and 
information available in the teaching section of this website. There are 
also a series of FAQ documents designed to help answer common questions 
of CRM adopters. Potential users/members of the CRM community are also 
welcomed to contact the CIDOC CRM SIG for advice and information. If you 
are already using CIDOC CRM and have questions or issues that are not 
resolved by the documentation and tutorials, you may always join the 
CIDOC CRM SIG mailing list and post questions on specific topics there. 
The results of past questions and issues are collected on the website 
and form a useful archive to consult in order to answer previously asked 
As mentioned above, the CIDOC CRM now encompasses both the basic 
standard, CRMbase, as well as a family of modular extensions. Each of 
these extensions has its own specific website to support its use in the 
same manner as above. To see the present list of extensions, please
