Hi David,

no formal standards, but substantial literature (both trade and scholarly) on planning museum exhibitions. Books by Dean and Lord & Lord a good starting point. You'll find more searching under the rubric of "interpretive planning", as we name the practice in museums, or check relevant course syllabi in museology programs. 

There are standards books / resources on exhibitions (the Toronto ROM had produced one 30 years ago) that also cover process to some extent.

My penny's worth.

Hi EuropeanaTech members,
I was contacted by some former colleagues in Sweden asking a question:
Are there any formal or de-facto standards for modelling (physical) exhibitions?

The context is that Swedish museums and the Wikimedia Sweden chapter are running a project to create articles on Wikipedia about specific exhibitions and would like to also include structured data (I think on Wikidata) about these exhibitions.

All I know is that there is an Event class in, but maybe you know of other or better options?
