  • CHIN Humanities Data Dictionary

    The CHIN Data Dictionaries contain a description of database fields for museum collection management and documentation. They can be used by a wide range of museums to help them to identify their institution's information needs and standardize their documentation.

    The Humanities Data Dictionary consists of 641 fields for collections in history, ethnology, archaeological specimens, and fine and decorative arts.

    Each data field in the CHIN Data Dictionaries is described by a field label, a mnemonic, a name, a definition, entry rules, related fields, a data type, examples, a discipline, and a source. The CHIN Data Dictionaries are used:
    - as a guideline for Canadian institutions that contribute collections data to CHIN's Artefacts Canada and Virtual Museum of Canada Image Gallery
    - as guidelines for institutions developing or modifying a collections management system
    - to help cataloguers record information consistently, or to help users of collections databases with search strategies.

    The CHIN Data Dictionaries are not a data structure for use in a collections management system, but they can be used as the basis for such a structure. They can be used by a wide range of museums to help them to identify their institution's information needs and standardize their documentation. They include fields for describing objects, specimens, and archaeological sites, as well as fields for collections management. CHIN's Data Dictionaries have been used by Canadian museums since the 1970s and are still used by many museums for contributing to Artefacts Canada and the Virtual Museum of Canada, to design collections management systems, and to standardize cataloguing.

    The CHIN Artefacts Canada Humanities Data Dictionary is a sub-set of the CHIN Humanities Data Dictionary. The Artefacts Canada Humanities Data Dictionary is the standard recommended for Canadian museums and for Artefacts Canada contribution. In 2010, the CHIN Artefacts Canada Humanities Data Dictionary and the CHIN Humanities Data Dictionary were updated with data entry rules from Cataloguing Cultural Objects (CCO) in order to bring them into line with international standards. Available in English and in French.
