Metadata enrichment of cultural heritage collections by means of structured vocabularies has been shown to improve the work of professionals and to increase accessibility of the collections for end-users. Still, collection metadata lack rich context information, such as references to events, which can be valuable for a more effective navigation in cultural heritage collections. In this paper, we present an approach that extends existing metadata enrichment processes with a method to discover historical events. The events are structured in a historical event thesaurus to enrich object metadata. As such, the event thesaurus is used as a bridge between objects in different collections. The results of this work allow for topic-based and event-centered browsing, searching and navigating in integrated collections.
