1 Collections Online CRM, Thesauri, Parties and more Adrian Kingston Collections Information Manager, Digital Assets & Development Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa Australasian EMu User Group Meeting, 2009, Sydney

2 Quick Collections Online history Sept 2005 first release. Driven from EMu catalogue and MM, but only 3000 objects. Editorial levels unreasonable 2007 agreed strategy of mass release, some enhancements Exhibition minisites delivered via Narratives and the catalogue July 2009 V3 released –Thesaurus, places and people added – objects, images, 300 topics –Up to 1 millions visits a year

3 Parallel projects DigitalNZ contributions, OAI-PMH, Remix Rights Strategy –how to make things more available, more open and more re-usable, without negatively impacting our commercial endeavours Loading existing, but external content –Tai Awatea, publications, old exhibition text

4 OK, so what is it? CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (ISO 21127:2006) All data and relationships come from EMu. –Catalogue –Multimedia –Narratives –Parties –Thesaurus Semantic relationships between objects, terms, people, places and topics Smarter searching Term browsing

5 EMu Developments Thesaurus Module development –Converted to be IRN based, act like other modules. Allows for true linking between object and terms, terms and terms etc –Still developing our own Pacific and Taonga Maori object classifications

6 EMu Developments, and data New fields and tabs –Associations tabs in Catalogue, Narratives –Association types, define how the concepts are related

7 Associations cataloguing (objects)

8 Semantic relationships Virgin and Child (Object) Captain cook (Person)

9 Smarter searching Banks: Person, Place, or where you put your money? Alternate terms

10 Term & Place Browsing Sydney: Person, Place? Rifles

11 That’s pretty cool Someone had linked to a category within one day. Hadn’t actually officially released it. Getty Vocabulary Programme impressed, want to use us as internal example of goodness People are linking to artist pages, rather than search results, exactly how it should be used A few complimentary comments on our blog, and on others

12 What’s up with that!? Outstanding issues –Numbers are off –Broader/narrower object browsing –Have to catch up with releasing multiple images –Some terms in AAT and TGM e.g. shadowsshadows –Few other tweaks here and there

13 Other bits and pieces Design based on new Te Papa website Multiple Images Random objects (actually it’s only random over a group of 800 objects) DigitalNZ searching via API

14 OK, so what next Lots to do, resourcing is an issue More data, images etc Taxonomy browser. Need to do same as what we did with the thesaurus (underway) Mapping (inc street view?) NE and Humanities collections. Linking to other websites, e.g. ULAN, DNZB, Cuba St project, NZVH, NZETC –Automated or manual data entry. Users? More collaborative stuff Soon, hopefully –Visual browser, with some user generated functionality

15 Thanks & FYI
