    The goal of the CHIP (Cultural Heritage Information Personalization) project is to provide personalized access to combined cultural heritage content. The driving case is given by the Rijksmuseum content presented on the museum Web site and visitor guides. The CHIP project aims to extend and integrate existing technologies for semantic browsing and search (e.g. Topia (Rutledge, L., et al., 2003), Noadster (Rutledge, L., et al., 2005), OntoAIMS), ontology-based user modeling (e.g. OWL-OLM (Denaux, R., et al., 2005)), adaptation strategies (e.g. AHA! (Bra, P.D., et al., 2004)) and presentation of structured information (e.g. Hera (Fiala, Z., et al., 2004)) in order to achieve its goals. We use as a starting point the Topia demonstrator, which provides search and browsing interface to 1250 semantically described Rijksmuseum artifacts. We extend further this research by involving semantic-aware adaptation strategies and semantic based reasoning user model elicitation to allow for effective personalization of the content navigation and presentation on various devices (e.g. Web application, PDA, etc.). In this, we integrate artifacts and background information that span over several collections and sources. Adaptive clustering mechanisms show the relations between art objects and links to background information, based on their metadata. Further, hypermedia formats support multi-branched story lines connecting art objects in "precooked" or automatically generated ways
