For each type of Virtual Museum there may be a different set of metadata necessary for describing the Virtual Museum as such, but also for describing the single elements / objects / entities /actions of a Virtual Museum.
Using the draft list of types of Virtual Museums as a starting point, WG1.2 (working jointly with TA3) identified the metadata standards (schema, ontologies etc) that have been used for the various types of Virtual Museums, for example CIDOC-CRM, DEMES and LIDO in the emerging typology (see WG1.1).
This was be complemented by a ’gap analysis’ which identified and described recommended areas for future standards work in relation to VM/DCH, published on the ViMM platform. Comments and contributions were invited from the whole community.
This enabled the development of the output from WG 1.1 and 1.2 so that it includes:
a) Name of Type.
b) Definition of Type.
d) Metadata standards (existing) – name/short description/information source(s).
e) Metadata standards (recommended).
TA1 and TA3 will conduct this work collaboratively within WG 1.2.
- Define the metadata standards
- Identify and describe topics for other standards for virtual museums and virtual cultural heritage
The outcomes of this work to include:
- A list of metadata and other standards likely to be relevant for Virtual Museums
- Recommendations for further standards needed
