The LIDO Working Group – formerly Data Harvesting and Interchange Working Group – centralizes information and activities that are currently taking place with Lightweight Information Describing Objects (LIDO), a format for contributing collection information for resource discovery. The Working Group sustains LIDO’s advancement, exposure, and applicability.
The Working Group brings together documentation and material for LIDO, along with information on CDWA Lite, and museumdat, the two XML schemas upon which LIDO is based. The Working Group provides a history of developments and material to help understand how the schemas evolved. Additionally, the Working Group serves as the source for the most up-to-date information about advancements with LIDO, and a place to evaluate its progress, implementations and understanding within the greater community.
The Working Group is co-chaired by:

Erin Coburn (Vice chair)
Independant Consultant, Digital Strategy for Museums & the Cultural Heritage Sector, Oakland, USA
Emmanuelle Delmas-Glass (Vice chair)
