Access by the museums, the DigiCult consulting center and external users (differentiated access authorization) controled vokabulary after Din 1463 (poly hierarchies, synonyms, connotations) unique Digi-Id for every descriptor

14 DokBase.xtree: IconClass

16 Homepage Museums in Schleswig-Holstein

17 Museumsportal: Collections

18 Link from data about an artist to search of literature via GBV

19 Biographie of Emil Nolde via Wikipedia

20 Practical Experience Comparison with standardised data not on the focus of the participating museums Only little acceptance of IconClass Comparison with SWD only by DigiCult-Team Classification of artistic styles is treated with reserve altogether: least depth of classification, simple lists of notions prefered Self-interest is of vital importance instead of common / international inquiry and publication Control of vocabulary by the offer of standarsized data in a complex structure with a simple interface Current advanced training and editorial support is necessary
