LIDO-Handbuch für die Erfassung und Publikation von Metadaten zu kulturellen Objekten
Band 1: Graphik
Volume 1 of the LIDO-Handbook, focusing on graphic arts, was developed in close cooperation with the members of the international network Graphik vernetzt. In order to link data from different collection systems in museums and libraries on cross-collection platforms, common standards for data content and data structure have to be applied. This practical guide lists all relevant data elements for the description of drawings and prints. Each data element contains a definition, advice for cataloguing, examples as well as additional information relevant when exporting data to the LIDO-XML format.
