Art Museum Image Consortium Data Specification (AMICO Data Specification)
http://www.amico.org/AMICOlibrary/dataspec.htmlEach work of art in The AMICO Library is documented by a Catalog Record (with at least all core fields, based on CDWA), Associated Multimedia files (at least one image file meeting the Image Specification, and any other number of other related media files) and a Metadata Record (with at least all core fields) for each Associated Multimedia file.
Cataloging Cultural Objects (CCO)
http://www.vrafoundation.org/ccoweb/index.htmCataloging Cultural Objects (CCO) is a data content standards initiative for the cultural heritage community. CCO web resources include cataloging examples, training tools and presentations for use by practitioners, in addition to excerpts from the CCO print publication. Sponsored by the Visual Resources Association Foundation, CCO activities center on educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of cataloging best practices for the visual resources, museum, library, and archival communities.
Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA)
http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/standards/cdwa/index.htmlCategories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) describes the content of art databases by articulating a conceptual framework for describing and accessing information about works of art, architecture, other material culture, groups and collections of works, and related images. CDWA includes 532 categories and subcategories. A small subset of categories are considered core in that they represent the minimum information necessary to identify and describe a work. CDWA includes discussions, basic guidelines for cataloging, and examples.
Categories for the Description of Works of Art - Lite (CDWA Lite)
http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/standards/cdwa/cdwalite.htmlCDWA 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).
CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CIDOC CRM)
http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/The CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) provides definitions and a formal structure for describing the implicit and explicit concepts and relationships used in cultural heritage documentation. The CIDOC CRM is intended to promote a shared understanding of cultural heritage information by providing a common and extensible semantic framework that any cultural heritage information can be mapped to. It is intended to be a common language for domain experts and implementers to formulate requirements for information systems and to serve as a guide for good practice of conceptual modelling. In this way, it can provide the "semantic glue" needed to mediate between different sources of cultural heritage information, such as that published by museums, libraries and archives. Since 9/12/2006 the CIDOC CRM is official standard ISO 21127:2006.
Datenfeldkatalog zur Grundinventarisierung (Data field catalog for the basic inventory) (Grundinventarisierung)

Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (Dublin Core)
http://dublincore.org/documents/dces/The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set is a vocabulary of fifteen properties for use in resource description. The name "Dublin" is due to its origin at a 1995 invitational workshop in Dublin, Ohio; "core" because its elements are broad and generic, usable for describing a wide range of resources. The fifteen element "Dublin Core" described in this standard is part of a larger set of metadata vocabularies and technical specifications maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI). The full set of vocabularies, DCMI Metadata Terms [DCMI-TERMS], also includes sets of resource classes (including the DCMI Type Vocabulary [DCMI-TYPE]), vocabulary encoding schemes, and syntax encoding schemes. The terms in DCMI vocabularies are intended to be used in combination with terms from other, compatible vocabularies in the context of application profiles and on the basis of the DCMI Abstract Model [DCAM].
Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Metadata Terms (DCMI Metadata Terms)
http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/All metadata terms maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative. Included are the fifteen terms of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, which have also been published as IETF RFC 5013 [RFC5013], ANSI/NISO Standard Z39.85-2007 [NISOZ3985], and ISO Standard 15836-21003 [ISO15836].
Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF)
http://eac.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/Encoded Archival Context – Corporate bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) primarily addresses the description of individuals, families and corporate bodies that create, preserve, use and are responsible for and/or associated with records in a variety of ways. Over time, other types of contextual entities may evolve under the larger EAC umbrella, but currently its primary purpose is to standardize the encoding of descriptions about agents to enable the sharing, discovery and display of this information in an electronic environment. It supports the linking of information about one agent to other agents to show/discover the relationships amongst record-creating entities, and the linking to descriptions of records and other contextual entities. EAC-CPF is a communication structure for archival contextual information for individuals, corporate bodies and families. It supports the exchange of ISAAR (CPF) compliant authority records.
Encoded Archival Description (EAD)
http://www.loc.gov/ead/The EAD Document Type Definition (DTD) is a standard for encoding archival finding aids using Extensible Markup Language (XML).
