  • Collection Level Description - the Museum Perspective

    From the article: "Many organizations -- libraries, archives, museums, government agencies, and others -- have content that they need to make accessible on the Internet. Museums have long had computerized collections management databases, and many of them are offering item-level meta-data to the public on the Web. But the content of museums’ collections databases is invisible to search engines -- so what is the means for resource discovery on the Web?

    LIDO (Lightweight Information Describing Objects):
    • Is an XML harvesting schema intended to transfer data from museum collections databases to data aggregations (such as Artefacts Canada) and for sharing museum data on the web
    • Can represent the full range of descriptive information about museum objects
    • Can be used for museum data of many disciplines (e.g. art, cultural, natural science)
    • Can be used in multilingual data aggregations
    • Is the result of an international collaboration based upon CDWA Lite and museumdat schemas
    • Is compliant with CIDOC CRM and aligned with SPECTRUM.

    Some collections management software systems are able to export LIDO records, enabling easier interchange. LIDO was announced in late 2010. It is available in English only.

  • Social Network Sites: Definition, History, and Scholarship

    Social network sites (SNSs) are increasingly attracting the attention of academic and industry researchers intrigued by their affordances and reach. This special theme section of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication brings together scholarship on these emergent phenomena. In this introductory article, we describe features of SNSs and propose a comprehensive definition. We then present one perspective on the history of such sites, discussing key changes and developments. After briefly summarizing existing scholarship concerning SNSs, we discuss the articles in this special section and conclude with considerations for future research.

Available in English only.

  • Methodological Report (Case Studies of the Cataloguing Structure Committee, DOCAM)

    This report is published by the DOCAM (Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage) Alliance, as part of the Cataloguing Structure Committee. DOCAM is an international research alliance on the documentation and the conservation of the media arts heritage.

    The report summarizes work to develop new methodologies and tools for conservation and documentation of media art, based on three case studies of works at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and the National Gallery of Canada.

    Through the three case studies, cataloguing practices and tools for media art are identified, and recommendations are made for improvements to these practices and for the development of a new set of tools for documentation and preservation of media art. This study will be the basis for a practical guide to cataloguing media art, which will be produced by DOCAM in 2009. Available in French and English.
