Automation is an important issue when integrating heterogeneous collections into archaeological digital libraries. We propose an incremental approach through intermediary- and mapping-based techniques. A visual schema mapping tool within the 5S framework allows semi-automatic mapping and in-cremental global schema enrichment. 5S also helped speed up development of a new multi-dimensional browsing service. Our approach helps integrate the Me-giddo excavation data into a growing union archaeological DL, ETANA-DL.
