Following a review of terminology in conservation, the Linked Conservation Data project has established a GitHub repository to share encoded versions of vocabularies used by conservators. This repository will function as the basis of a terminology portal for conservation. A list of some of these vocabularies can be found on the controlled vocabularies page.

Workshop summary

In May 2020, the Linked Conservation Data consortium organised a workshop about education which featured presentations from The Guildhall Museum Rochester, National Galleries Scotland and The National Archives. The recordings from the workshop are available online: Education Workshop and summarised here. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together expertise from across conservation and education departments of memory organisations and to discuss ways in which conservation Linked Data can become a valuable resource for education activities in memory organisations.

This report is a review of published work describing models for conservation data based on the CIDOC-CRM and its extensions. The report is an analysis of the new classes and properties recommended, as well as the mapping decisions adopted for the published models. The report identifies common practices and recommends ways of harmonising the different models. It proposes areas where further modelling work is needed and attempts to organise this work in conceptually coherent groups from a conservation perspective.
