CONF: Digital Catalogues. Towards Interoperability (Paris, 5 Feb 19)

Paris, Ecole normale supérieure, February 05, 2019

Symposium: Digital Catalogues. Towards Interoperability

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? Whatever the languages and writings?

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.

Sessions will be open to all.
