In this talk we present our research project SMW-CorA which is targeting researchers in the history of education and provides a virtual research environment to allow annotation and analysis of a large digitalized corpus of historical lexica. One result is the Semantic Image Annotator extension which allows to annotate rectangular image sections semantically. Moreover we present three major problems/challenges that we encountered, namely:

  1. multilinguality of schemata and annotations,
  2. continuous adjustment of schemata and annotations,
  3. levels of visibility of content and controlled RDF export.
