LIDO Terminology Repository Set Type

"The LIDO Terminology refers to LIDO – Lightweight Information Describing Objects, the XML Schema for contributing content to cultural heritage repositories, provided by the CIDOC LIDO Working Group.

It complements the LIDO v1.0 specification and is intended to further enhance the interoperability of LIDO data across different collections by introducing controlled type vocabularies for certain LIDO elements and attributes.

The LIDO Terminology is committed to the Linked Open Data paradigm by making each LIDO Term referenceable through a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). It is recommended best practice to use the URI from the terminology.lido-schema.org/ namespace to indicate the type of a LIDO element or attribute. The primary objective of this practice is to support data providers in adapting or mapping their data structures to LIDO, thus facilitating the processing of LIDO data for service providers, increasing the interoperability of LIDO data, and supporting information retrieval across different collections.

Work on the LIDO Terminology is carried out, on behalf of the CIDOC LIDO Working Group, by the LIDO Terminology Working Group: a joint effort of the Working Group Data Exchange‒Special Interest Group Documentation of the German Museums Association and the Working Group 'Data' of the German Digital Library."

"The type attribute of the LIDO Custody/Repository Location Set element qualifies the given repository or location as a former or the current one.

It designates and identifies the institution of custody and, possibly, indicates the exact geographic location of the object. For stationary objects like buildings and monuments, it may be appropriate to indicate a location only.

The vocabulary for the type attribute of the LIDO element Custody/Repository Location Set may be extended, if necessary."
