Lightweight Information Describing Objects

Short Title: 
LIDO
Provider: 
CIDOC
Description: 
The first point to make about LIDO is that it is a harvesting schema. It should not be used as a basis for a collection management system. It is for delivering metadata for use in the service environment of an organisation’s online collections database, portals, and aggregations, including Europeana itself. In particular it does not support such activities as loans and acquisition. Its strength lies with its ability to support the full range of descriptive information about museum objects.
