  2. 2. For educational purposes only. Do not distribute. What is Subject? The subject matter of a work of art (sometimes referred to as In CCO and CDWA it is its content) broadly defined is the narrative, iconic, or non- objective meaning conveyed “Core” information by a figurative or an abstract For all objects, even composition. those that have no It is what is d i t d i and b i h t i depicted in d by subject “subject” in the a work of art. traditional sense It also covers the function of an object or architecture that otherwise has no narrative content. © 2011 J.

  3. 3. For educational purposes only. Do not distribute. What is Subject? Quick overview You are probably accustomed to R i l i Representational, narrative thinking of Tells a story subject in these Representational, not a story ways: Portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre scenes, architectural drawings, allegories But th B t these may Nonrepresentational N t ti l also be Abstract “subject”: Decoration Function Implied themes or attributes © 2011 J. Paul Getty Trust, author: Patricia Harpring. Do not distribute. For educational purposes only. Do repositories record subject? Issue: One of the primary ways by which users want to retrieve information and images of art is by subject content However, few repositories of art or of images record subject terms How does the community overcome this problem? We all recognize the problem; but there is no easy solution © 2011 J. Paul Getty Trust, author: Patricia Harpring. Do not distribute. For educational purposes only.Patricia Harpring, March 2011 Subject Access for Art Works: CONA page 3 © 2011 J. Paul Getty Trust
  4. 4. For educational purposes only. Do not distribute. Do repositories record subject? Repositories of objects would be best source of current data for objects; but do they index subject content? OCLC study in 2009 Cataloging data from 9 art museums was analyzed for compatibility to CCO and CDWA See D-Lib Magazine for article on the project © 2011 J. Paul Getty Trust, author: Patricia Harpring. Do not distribute. For educational purposes only. 15. Subject Term Results of analysis show the percentages of records that have correctly included data for core CCO/CDWA fields Most museums generally are compliant with most of the core fields Some are missing data due to incorrect parsing (e.g., work type, role creator, which can be extrapolated and inserted globally in export) Exception: Only one of the nine museums had subject indexing © 2011 J.
