ENABLING TECHNOLOGY (SELECTED TYPES OF FILE)

The right file handling is one of the core competences of media productions. Because we have nearly endless filetypes the export and import functionallity is most important for handling data in the next workflow. What fileformats does your CMS support ? How is your system oranized ? Image-centric

where a metadata record is attached to each and every image

Object-centric

where one or more image ca be attached to an object record

Are descriptions like metadata supportet by your image management software ?

average features include:

cataloguing uploading downloading

searching editing ordering

DIGITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT purchasing

rights management workflow etc. 7

DIGITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT Clustered in Image Management Video Management Document Management (DMS)

IMAGE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE Can be grouped into features related to:

images

metadata

delivery to users

„However, as a means of managing large collections, this approach has several draw-backs:

Your digital media can only be given one file name and put into one folder - while you could conceivably repeat the same file with different filenames or copy it into different folders, such duplication would take up valuable storage space and be likely to lead to future confusion. You will be limited in how you can name files and folders - while it is now possible to write long file or folder names, these are not unlimited and would not allow certain characters to be used You will need to decide at the outset what characteristics are the most important and useful for categorising your files - does it make more sense to organise by date, format, file size, duration, subject, source or something else? Your idiosyncratic way of organising the collection may not make sense to other users - when you share your collection with others you may discover that your approach to organising the content is not quite as intuitive as you thought!“ 9

(Art Galleries, Museums, Libraries, Colleges, Universities, Schools, private Collections etc.)


Group A

PRIVATE USER

What are they doing by managing their private fotos, videos and docs?

• changing color, size, compressing filerate, storing and more often sharing files, collecting and downloading files How do they manage files? With what software? • • • • •

Aperture and iPhoto (only for MAC) Link-Aperture skills Irfan View etc. (only on Windows PC‘s) Adobe Photoshop (Mac and PC) Google Picasa Google Wave („Future Tools“) Wave-Link

For whom? • for them selfes, for friends and familiy by sharing files, maybe for their educational aspects, and actually more unknown web audience (like in Social Media Communities etc.) 15

Group B

LOWER PROFESSIONALS What are they doing by managing their private fotos, videos and docs? > changing color, size, compressing filerate, storing and more often sharing files, collecting and downloading files BUT: They have to provide their file much more detailed for the client side

Price 190 EUR 1.950 EUR 280 EUR

How do they manage files? With what software? • Aperture (only for MAC) Link-Aperture skills Software versioning! • Adobe Photoshop CS5 (Mac and PC) Changing near ly ever y year. • Adobe Lightroom (Mac and PC) For whom? > for them selfes, for friends and familiy by sharing files, maybe for their educational aspects, and actually more unknown web audience (like on Social Media Communities etc.) 18

3 important Data Formats as XML Schema cdwalite-xsd-public-v1-1.xsd

museumdat‐v1.0.xsd spectrum‐3.1.xsd

CDWA AND CDWA LITE:

CATEGORIES FOR THE DESCRIPTION OF WORKS OF ART CDWA describes the content of art databases by articulating a conceptual framework for describing and accessing information about works of art, architecture, other material culture, groups and collections of works, and related images. It includes 532 categories and subcategories. CDWA Lite is an XML schema to describe core records for works of art and material culture based on CDWA and CCO. CDWA Lite records are intended for contribution to union catalogs and other repositories using the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) harvesting protocol.

31


CDWA LITE TO MUSEUMDAT: CDWA Lite is very much focused on fine arts: it‘s starting point was eventually delivering metadata from an art collection (the Getty museum) to a digital library on art (ARTstor). CDWA Lite is very much focused on north american data standards:

• CDWA as data structure standard • AAT, TGN, ULAN as data value standards • CCO as data content standard

32


MUSEUMDAT: Museumdat is developed by the Working Groupe of Data exchange, German Museum Association: •Event‐oriented approach of CIDOC‐CRM allows for generalizing the format for use with various object data •CIDOC‐CRM as ISO standard (ISO 21127) is the reference model ➥ a standard metadata format should be CRM compliant Museumdat is a reconfiguration of CDWA Lite based on CIDOCCRM analysis.

33


SPECTRUM SPECTRUM is the UK and international standard for Collections Management. It consists of two main sections: - Procedures - Information requirements SPECTRUM XML Schema provides a standard format for exchanging object records between different collections management systems. Its objective is the whole world of documenting museum collections management.

34


LIDO

35

http://demo.mdid.org/


LIDO

LIGHTWEIGHT INFORMATION DESCRIBING OBJECTS LIDO is a format for contributing museum information for resource discovery. LIDO specified as XML Schema, is the result of a joint effort of the CDWA Lite, museumdat, SPECTRUM and CIDOC CRM communities. The schema combines the CDWA Lite and museumdat schemas and is informed by SPECTRUM. Being CIDOC-CRM compliant, it aims at contributing information of all kinds of museum objects for resource discovery.

36


LIDO CONSTRUCTION PRINCIPLES OF LIDO: • Provide a specification and related XML schema that describes cultural materials appropiately, that is in a meaningful and comprehensive manner • Allow for contributing data and images relating to your objects to union catalogues • Deliver the information in a „self-comprehensible“ way, that is a record includes all the necessary information for display and retrieval of your object (core, but good descriptive metadata!) • Individual data providers can decide on how light – or how rich – they want their contributed metadata records to be • Include links from contributed metadata back to records in their 'home' context • Provide optimised metadata for retrieval on one hand and for display on the other -> distinction of display and indexing elements • Provide references to controlled vocabulary
