    1. 1. “You put down one color, it calls for another. You have to look at it like a melody.” – Romare Bearden Fall 2013 | Metadata Presentation By kYmberly Keeton The University of North Texas MLIS Candidate| Spring 2014 www.kreativeyoungmillionaire.com Artwork By: Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, William H. Johnson 1
    2. 2. The CDWA (resource) was created as a structure to describe art work and their accompany images that can be navigated to a database or via an XML-scheme encoding scheme, promoting sharing of research records and user access. CDWA was founded in the early 1990s by the Art Information Task Force. The group is comprised of art and information professionals that came together to create specific rules for describing art, objects, architecture, textual information, and visual artifacts. The AITF was funded by the J. Paul Getty Trust, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the College Art Association. The CDWA-Lite XML schema was created by three organizations including ARTstor, the J. Paul Getty Trust, and RLG Programs/OCLC to describe artifacts, cultural entities, and their affiliates. “This initiative was driven by the absence of a data content standard specifically designed for unique cultural works, and a technical format for expressing this data in a machinereadable format.

    3. 3.  CDWA FRAMEWORK = 532 categories + subcategories  The CWDA Framework promotes the following: Compatibility | Accessibility | Integrity of Data | Longevity of Data.  Intended Users: curators, information managers, systems vendors, and registrars.

    5. 5. 5 •“CDWA Lite is an XML schema to describe core records for works of art and material culture based on the Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) and Cataloging Cultural Objects: A Guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images ( CCO) (which uses a subset of the CDWA categories).” “The purpose of this schema is to describe a format for core records for works of art and material culture, based on the data elements and guidelines contained in the CDWA and CCO. Like VRA Core, CDWA Lite offers an XML format in which to store metadata about works of visual culture in accordance with CCO. CDWA Lite records are intended for contribution to union catalogs and other repositories using the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) harvesting protocol.” • Quotes By The Getty Source: http://www.getty.edu/research/publications/electronic_publications/cdwa/cdwalite.html
    6. 6.  Cataloging Cultural Objects “… A guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images (CC) includes rules and examples for a core subset of the CDWA categories and the VRA Core Categories.” The CCO is the third of four types of data standards for the art and material cultures (it is the dominant source used today). The guide is available in hardcopy via their website for free. Quote By VRA Foundation Source: http://cco.vrafoundation.org/index.php/aboutindex/  VRA Core 4. “A data standard for the description of images and works of art and culture. The current version of this standard is VRA Core 4.0, which features two options for implementation: “unrestricted” which defines the VRA Core data elements, and “restricted” which enforces data constraints on certain elements to predefined vocabularies or date formats.” Quote By Archivists.Org Source: http://www2.archivists.org/standards/visual-resources-association-core-categories-vra-core 6

    8. 8. A main characteristic of the CDWA Lite format is the division of the descriptive metadata in display elements on one hand, optimized for presentation purposes, and indexing elements optimized for retrieval. Source: IFLA Conference http://conference.ifla.org/past/2009/107-coburn-en.pdf Indexing elements, they usually should refer to authorities for actors, places, or to controlled vocabularies, are provided with attributes for storing a respective URI (term source and term source ID), assuring the identity of a term in a larger context.

    10. 10. METADATA RECORD Harvested CONTINUED…. This metadata record also had Indexing elements along with the display element. “Indexing elements contain information that facilitates search and retrieval, in addition to assisting aggregators with filtering and sorting search results. At the J. Paul Getty Museum, the creator information largely comes from an artist authority file, which is then mapped appropriately to CDWA Lite indexing and display elements,” (IFLA Conference, 2009) <cdwalite:displayCreator> Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) (Italian, about 1487 1576)</cdwalite:displayCreator> <cdwalite:indexingCreatorSet> <cdwalite:nameCreatorSet> <cdwalite:nameCreator type="personalName" termsource="ULAN" termsourceID=" ulan500031075"> Titian </cdwalite:nameCreator> <cdwalite:nameCreatorSet> <cdwalite:nameCreatorSet> <cdwalite:nameCreator type="personalName" termsource="ULAN" termsourceID="ulan500031075"> Vecellio, Tiziano </cdwalite:nameCreator> <cdwalite:nameCreatorSet> <cdwalite:nationalityCreator>Italian</cdwalite:nationalityCreator> <cdwalite:vitalDatesCreator birthdate="1487" deathdate="1576"> about 1487 - 1576 </cdwalite:vitalDatesCreator> <cdwalite:genderCreator> male </cdwalite:genderCreator> <cdwalite:roleCreator termsource="AAT" termsourceID="aat300025136">painter </cdwalite:roleCreator> </cdwalite:indexingCreatorSet> </cdwalite:indexingCreatorWrap> 10
