Symposium at Ecole normale supérieure, Paris, 5 February 2019

Organizers : Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel, ENS-PSL, and Nuria Rodríguez-Ortega, University of Málaga.

Over the past ten years, there has been an increasing number of digital projects using catalogues: exhibition catalogues, sales catalogues, catalogue raisonnés, museum catalogues, – and of course library catalogues. All seem to focus on different and complementary data, but the step of interoperability and sharing remains a horizon. How to ensure the interoperability of these databases? Our workshop aims at exploring ways to propose a common solution that will allow these corpora to dialogue, especially as far as exhibition and auction catalogues are concerned. Researchers must be able to exchange and compare their data, regardless of the structure of their catalogue databases, and regardless of the digital solutions adopted to build them (database, semantic web, TEI). The workshop aims at defining the steps that will lead to a connected ecosystem of arts-related catalogues. We want to discuss about :

  • the possibilities of establishing unique identifiers that can be used to define an exhibition, auction or catalogue
  • which set of good practices should be adopted in the process of creating databases based on catalogues
  • the recovery and citation of sources recovered online

Our final goal is to produce :

  • the definition of unique identifiers for exhibition, auction and catalogue that can be used as global authority.
  • a guide of good practices.
  • a guide for the recovery and citation of sources recovered online

Sessions will be open to all.
