The University of the Arts London in collaboration with the University of Manchester and the John Rylands library are organising a free workshop as part of the Linked Conservation Data (LCD) project on the 9th of January 2020. The workshop will be on modelling conservation data with the purpose of sharing records across documentation systems in conservation and beyond the profession. The workshop will begin with a lecture introducing the work of LCD on conservation thesauri and modelling. The principles of modelling conservation data with the CIDOC-CRM will then be described.

Members of the conservation team from The National Archives attended this modelling workshop. Following an introduction to the CIDOC-CRM, modelling and Linked Data by Athanasios Velios, the team undertook modelling exercises based on records from the conservation documentation system at TNA. We looked at typical cases of describing structures and materials of objects, ongoing deterioration and condition observed.

In May 2020, Linked Conservation Data initiated its phase two research into education with an online workshop which featured presentations from The Guildhall Museum Rochester, National Galleries Scotland and The National Archives. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together expertise from across conservation and education departments of museums and heritage institutions and to create dialogue around ways in which conservation data shared as Linked Data may become a valuable resource for the education sector.
