Prepared for CIDOC Working Group Data Harvesting and Interchange, CDWA Lite/museumdat Working Group, Collections Trust and Deutscher Museumsbund - Fachgruppe Dokumentation by: Erin Coburn - The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Richard Light, Gordon McKenna - Collections Trust, Regine Stein - Deutsches Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte Bildarchiv Foto Marburg, Axel Vitzthum - digiCULT-Verbund eG


2010-11-08: version 1.0. This schema version provides a common, single schema for contributing content to cultural heritage repositories. It meets the requirements articulated by CDWA Lite, museumdat and SPECTRUM.


It is a substantial redesign and enhancement of the CDWA Lite and museumdat schemas based on recommendations of the CDWA Lite/museumdat Working Group, community feedback and further CIDOC-CRM analysis. It includes additional concepts to meet SPECTRUM requirements.


The schema supersedes both the CDWA Lite v1.1 schema and the museumdat v1.0 schema and serves as the harvesting schema for contributing museum information for resource discovery.
