The implementation of a distributed electronic art platform with a considerable amount of data available involves some technical challenges. Due to the lack of a common European platform for media art, the European Commission has decided to finance the implementation of GAMA (Gateway to Archives of Media Art), with the aim of establish a common platform for media art archives. One of the universities involved in the project is the AGH University of Science and Technology from Krakow, with responsibilities concerning to the architecture and IT solutions. The AGH team involved in the project is integrated by professors and students of the University, including the author of this paper. In the following chapters, an approach to the architecture of GAMA is presented, as well as the actual problem of integration of services and the solutions used to solve it in GAMA. Also the concept of harmonization and approximate string matching is presented, along with its applications and most used implementation solutions. For the GAMA project a system has been implemented to deal with the problem, this thesis describes the methodology used and the details of the implementation.
