Introduction to EODEM for software developers, presented by Rupert Shepherd, 22 May 2022

Introduction to EODEM, workshop, 24 May 2022

In a normal year, museum staff manually copy the details of thousands of objects from their databases and send them to other museums that wish to borrow those objects. The borrowing museums’ staff then manually copy those details back into their own systems. The CIDOC Documentation Standards Working Group’s EODEM project aims to make the whole process much quicker and simpler, by establishing a framework that will enable museum databases to export an object’s data from one system at the press of a button, and import that data into another system as easily as possible.

Project Lead Rupert Shepherd will explain the project’s working principles and current status; selected collections management system vendors will demonstrate how the model works in their systems; and members of the team will answer questions from attendees

Dealing with complexity (Collections Trust Annual Conference, 2021)

The Exhibition Object Data Exchange Model (EODEM): latest developments, presented by Rupert Shepherd, 15 October 2021

Every year museum staff manually copy the details of thousands of objects from their databases, and send them to other museums that wish to borrow those objects. The borrowing museums’ staff then manually copy those details back into their own systems. The Exhibition Object Data Exchange Model (EODEM) aims to provide a standard which makes it possible to share this information at the touch of a button. After introducing the standard at least year’s conference, Rupert Shepherd will give a quick update on progress and next steps in its development.

Introduction to the Exhibition Object Data Exchange Mechanism (EODEM), workshop, 7 December 2020

Working Group Chair Maija Ekosaari describes how this all got started. Project lead Rupert Shepherd explains how it will work, and some of the challenges encountered along the way. Working group member (and previous Chair) Richard Light will join the discussion with some insights into implementing EODEM.

A case-study in collaboration: the LIDO and EODEM working groups, workshop, 8 December 2020

Despite collaborating for several months, this will be the first formal get-together of the EODEM project and the LIDO Working group. The aim of the meeting is to briefly introduce the EODEM project and the LIDO profile it has created and to discuss more generally the opportunities for developing profiles within the updated framework of LIDO v1.1.

Project Lead Rupert Shepherd and LIDO Chair Regine Stein will share what the two groups learnt from the co-operation: what brought results, and what would they would do differently. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and work together to find the answers.
