Seminar Working Groups
|1.||Collections Management Standards in Europe|
|Chair:||Jeanne Hogenboom, Bureau IMC,
|Co-chair:||Lilja Arnadottir, National Museum
|Presentation:||Matthew Stiff, mda, UK
|The EMII European
Standards Survey has revealed that 4/10 active partners have a
national collections management standard (data and or
procedural). Should EMII facilitate the development of a
European Collections Management Standard? If so, what should
this incorporate? How should it be co-ordinated? In what format
should it be distributed? And how should it relate to other
cultural standards to facilitate resource discovery and
Matthew Stiff's presentation will examine the United Kingdom model where a national standard exists and work is in progress to facilitate regional variations for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
|2.||EMII Information Gateway|
|Chair:||Morten Lundbaek, Danish National
Council of Museums
|Co-chair:||Bengt Wittgren, Swedish National
Council for Cultural Affairs
|Presentation:||Bengt Wittgren, Swedish National
Council for Cultural Affairs
|Partners are unanimous
in their support of the development of EMII as an
internationally recognised resource for and about museum
information management. The provision of information via the
Internet is the obvious means of delivery. But what should the
scope be? And how best should this be managed? Internet access
will be available for this working group - participants may wish
to forward details of any example gateway sites to Bengt
Wittgren in advance for discussion during the working group.
Bengt Wittgren's presentation will describe how such a gateway could be managed for a distributed network of partners such as EMII.
|3.||EMII European Standards Survey|
|Chair:||Isabel Cordeiro, Institute of
|Co-chair:||Elin Harriet Wyller, Norwegian
|Presentation:||Karien Beijers, Reinwardt Academie,
|The European Standards
Survey is the tool by which we can assess the current
availability and implementation of standards across Europe. Many
partners are keen to see the survey developed into a recognised
management resource, not only for the planning and management of
information management but also as a business information tool.
The growth in cultural tourism and the new emphasis on the
learning agenda at national and EU level support the need for
greater and more accurate information about European museums.
Several partners already conduct a national survey. How can we
capitalise on this experience and what should the EMII survey
contain or not contain? Who should have access to the
information? How regularly should it be updated?
Karien Beijers will present an analysis of the National Overview section of the European Standards Survey recently completed as part of her B.A thesis under the museology programme, Reinwardt Academie, Amsterdam School of the Arts.
