Provenance-aware Faceted Search in Drupal

As the web content is increasingly generated in more diverse situations, provenance is becoming more and more critical. While a variety of approaches have been investigated for capturing and making use of provenance metadata, arguably no single best-practice approach has emerged. In this paper, we investigate an approach that leverages one of the most popular content management systems - Drupal. More specifically, we study how provenance meta- data can be captured and later published as structured data on the Web using Drupal. We also demonstrate how provenance metadata can be used to facilitate faceted search in Drupal.
