Whatever you decide, keep me in!
I find this list very useful, in particular the discussion on standards to represent exhibitions. I wonder whether there are standards that also extend to virtual exhibitions ? I’m also unsure whether SPECTRUM and CDWA meet what I would be looking for, which is defining an exhibition as an event, and attaching properties (metadata) to this event rather than attaching an event history to an art object. You could look at an exhibition as a kind of collection, but then again one with very specific properties?

I completely agree with Jos Van Dyck and thanks Pat for stepping forward form the museums and metadata standards world, where we are heavily involved.
It is quite pity to see, that attendees of Europeana tech list, are not able to read emails and unsubscribe them self from the list according provided instructions. The question is how they appeared in this mailing list? It should obviously happen by accident.
Is it possible to open specific topic channel?

Předmět: Re: Question about data models or standards for representing exhibitions?
What a pity that so few people seem to be interested in data modeling!
However, it are the data models that define the usefulness of databases, what you can find etc.
The input of experienced librarians, archivists etc. is very important.
I want to encourage folks to participate nevertheless.

So, I certainly do not want to be removed (an I know how to unsubscribe ;-)
The discussion around standards and data models for exhibitions is very interesting.
Maybe to get inspiration have a look at
www.TDWG.org (Biodiversity Information Standards)
I think these networks will be very interested by the discussion and there are possible nice collaborations to explore here. We have been working on standards that could fit nicely.
With my best wishes
