FRBR and TMS: Applying a Conceptual Organizational Model for Cataloguing Photographic Archives
This is an updated version of a paper, “FRBR and TMS: Applying a Conceptual Organizational Model for Cataloguing Photographic Archives,” presented at Collective Imagination 2014 in Vienna, Austria.
In order to manage the visual archive, containing analog photographic material as well as born-digital images, the Worcester Art Museum has been cataloguing images of objects from the permanent collection into the Media Module of TMS following the guidance of several conceptual models of organization. By referencing the digital preservation guidelines of the Digital Curation Center Lifecycle Model (DCC) and conceptual organizational models of the OAIS Reference Model and the Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Reference (FRBR) method of organization, an organizational model was implemented to better assist with the cataloguing to represent digital assets with their analogue parents. This paper looks at the archival cataloguing workflow and areas of CIDOC Conceptual Reference model's application in a collection management system, including advantages in clarity of metadata for analog and born-digital images.
