Online-Workshop on Controlled Vokabularies

Blog |

Integration of data, metadata and their interoperability with applications for analysis and processing are one of the major challenges for museum catalogue systems today. Specialized institutions such as maritime museums, in particular, maintain highly specific controlled vocabularies for their materials. The workshop seeks to provide an overview of such vocabulaires in museums with maritime collections: How are these vocabularies built and utilized for indexing and retrieval, and how are the structured to group synonyms and arrange concepts into categories?

The English-language online workshop on "Controlled Vocabularies" will be held on 7. December, 2021, from 10 am to 5 pm. Register with Dr. Alexander Reis at A.Reis@dsm.museum
