Subject: Videos: Organization ID's & Getty's Provenance Index
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 15:30:18 -0400
New videos from CNI’s April membership meeting are now available:

Despite excellent work undertaken by existing players, there is no consistently adopted, open, community-driven infrastructure providing organization identifiers. The Future of Organization Identifiers provides an overview of current and potential uses of organization identifiers, current state of the art, a summary of topical reports and working papers, and a review of a draft proposal for a ‘minimum viable product’ to serve community needs.

The Getty Provenance Index records the ownership and sale of artwork as documented in auction house sales catalogs, archival inventories, dealer stock books, and listings of public collections, with some records reaching as far back as the 16th century. In the mid 1980’s, the Getty converted the print publication to an online database, and now, 30 years later, the system of six heterogeneous flat file databases that make up the Provenance Index will be mapped to the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) and released as Linked Open Data. Rebuilding the Getty Provenance Index as Linked Data describes the project background, reveals some of the work in progress, and outlines the project roadmap.
