"Systems for Museums"
- But often relatively few examples of each type
- A larger museum may have several (or many) million objects that are uniquely identified whilst a company may have large quantities of, say, nuts and bolts but these are not individually numbered
- Paintings have painters, prints have engravers, artists and print publishers, etc.. No generic term of "maker" is adequate
- Yet building a solution for each object type is far too expensive using traditional methods of system development
- Systems for registrars, curators and conservators need to store different information about the same objects.
- Web sites need to present part of the same data in a different way
- This is not a good idea.
- The records for books in a library should also be used for bibliography for people and objects
