Rubbing has been a universal print technology for centuries to preserve and disseminate cultural heritage across countries. Rubbings have high value for art, history, culture, biography, paleography, archology, and epigraphy study. The open digital rubbing collections allow rubbings to reach a wider range of patrons and facilitate relevant research. However, the descriptions of the rubbing collections vary a lot in terms of depth and width since rubbings are culturally-dependent. Very general descriptions of rubbings with limited details might cause devaluation, thus making them less appreciable and useful. Linked Data will enable the connections between descriptions of the same, related, and contextual resources and provide an overall view of rubbings. High-quality metadata is a great source as well as a foundation to create Linked Data, The presentation will focus on the study of metadata schemes and descriptions of rubbings in different institutions, cultures, and countries. A qualitative comparative research method will be adopted. The purpose of the comparison is to increase awareness of different metadata schemes used to catalog rubbings across the world, enhance understanding of the influence of different cultural backgrounds on the description of rubbings, enrich the existing comparative research of rubbings, contribute to a common rule to describe rubbings resources, and identify important factors for rubbings data modeling.
