Challenges implementing persistent URI's in memory institutions - Following an assessment of their online catalogues and web applications, the Flemish Art Collection started the implementation of persistent URI's for collection objects in ten partner memory institutions. The project followed recommendations from CIDOC and ISA, creating persistent URI's for about 35.000 works of art in seven different museums, but also for the corresponding images, curators, artists and subjects.
This presentation discusses the process of identifying 35.000 unique objects with persistent URI’s, how they were made reusable via Wikidata, but also how we ran into a series of issues engaging memory institutions recording URI's in their systems, keeping them up-to-date and eventually using them in their daily collection management work.
