Building on the mda SPECTRUM XML DTD for Collections Management Data Interchange
Bert Degenhart Drenth , ADLIB Information Systems, The Netherlands

Session: Interchange

The Museum Documentation Association, working in collaboration with CIMI and other organizations, has developed an XML-DTD based on SPECTRUM, an established museum process and documentation standard. Of particular interest to the museum community is the potential this DTD offers for the exchange of collections-based information. Imagine being able to migrate data from your institution's collections management system to another with the click of a button. This application is the basis for CIMI's test bed this year. CIMI member, Bert Degenhart Drenth, Managing Director of ADLIB Information Systems will discuss the impact of the SPECTRUM XML DTD on data migration.
