Using Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) and CDWA Lite

With information from the Getty Institute

Abstract:

This chapter provides guidelines, advice, and exercises in the usage of Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) with a focus on the CDWA Lite element set. CDWA is an option for describing images and allows rich description in the metadata record. CDWA was created to provide guidelines for describing works of art, architecture, groups of objects, and visual and textual surrogates. This standard addresses many information needs for the cultural heritage community. A discussion of the content standard Cataloging Cultural Objects (CCO), which interoperates with CDWA, is included. This chapter includes a guide to the element set with description and an exercise.

Introduction

The Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) schema is another option for describing images and other works of art. It contains elements useful to describing material objects that may or may not have text included. For example, CDWA distinguishes between “Title” and “Inscription” – a work of art may have an inscription that is not its title. In the image below (Figure 5.1), the title may be composed of part of the inscription, but there is a great deal of information that will not be included in the title.

CDWA was devised to enable widespread sharing and ingestion in union catalogs, while eliminating much of the overhead associated with shared catalogs (Coburn et al., 2010, p. 18). It has 31 categories and 380 subcategories (Zeng and Qin, 2008, p. 33). CDWA was designed to work with Cataloging Cultural Objects (CCO), and thus is also compatible with popular thesauri such as LCSH and AAT (Art & Architecture Thesaurus) (Boughida, 2005, p. 50).

CDWA was produced by the Art Information Task Force (AITF), which was formed to develop guidelines for describing works of art, architecture, groups of objects, and visual and textual surrogates. Formed in the early 1990s, the Task Force was made up of representatives from the communities that provide and use art information: art historians, museum curators and registrars, visual resource professionals, art librarians, information managers, and technical specialists. The work of the AITF was funded by the J. Paul Getty Trust and the National Endowment for the Humanities (Zeng and Qin, 2008, p. 32).

CDWA contains concepts for creating the framework for your metadata, concepts which are important in the art world: item, group, volume, collection, series, set, and component. Many of them are familiar from other metadata content schemes, such as item and series, but they are tailored to the information needs of the cultural object world.

 Item ‒ the object or work

 Group ‒ an aggregate of items that share a common provenance

 Volume = N materials that are bound together

 Collection = N multiple items arranged together. May not share provenance or binding, but are related in some intellectual way

 Series = N works created in temporal succession

 Set ‒ items intended to be used or viewed as a whole (e.g. a set of globes of the solar system)

 Component ‒ a part of a whole that does not stand alone.

 (Zeng and Qin, 2008, p. 34)

CDWA has been mapped to MARC, DC, EAD, and other metadata schemas. If this language meets your collections’ needs it can interoperate with many other systems and expose your content to a very wide audience ‒ especially with the creation of CDWA Lite.

CDWA Lite is an XML schema for encoding core records for works of art and material culture. It is a technical interchange standard designed with the needs of art and material culture communities in mind (Baca, 2007, p. 69). CDWA Lite recommends using guidelines from CCO to assist with selecting, ordering, and formatting data used to populate the elements (Coburn et al., 2010, p. 18). If CCO is the content standard, and CDWA is the structural standard, CDWA Lite is the technical structure (Boughida, 2005, p. 50). CDWA Lite fills an important need to deliver the data. It is also a compromise between the richness of CDWA and the sparseness of Dublin Core (Boughida, 2005, p. 52).

CDWA Lite has 22 elements, 19 of which are for descriptive metadata and three of which are for administrative metadata (Coburn et al., 2010, p. 19). Only nine of the elements are required. This standard divides display and indexing elements. CDWA Lite is harvestable via the OAI‒ PMH standard; thus data in CDWA can be repurposed and easily transported. It is listed as an Open Archives Initiative (OAI) Best Practice. CDWA Lite can be used to share metadata among union catalogs and link back to fuller records with richer description at home institutions (Baca, 2007, p. 70).

CDWA Lite is versatile and can be extended. For example, “Museumdat” is an expansion created by the German Museums Association to provide for the information needs of natural history collections (Coburn et al., 2010, p. 20). The rich standard of CCO coupled with the streamlined CDWA Lite can be a powerful pair to distribute quality metadata describing your art content (Boughida, 2005, p. 53).

CCO (Cataloging Cultural Objects)

The creation of Cataloging Cultural Objects marked the first attempt that had been made to codify content standards for cataloging cultural heritage items (Jackson, 2008, p. 109). The primary focus of CCO is art and architecture, including but not limited to paintings, sculpture, prints, manuscripts, photographs, built works, installations, and other visual media; however, CCO may also cover other types of cultural works, including archaeological sites, artifacts, and functional objects from the realm of material culture. Like AACR2 and DACS, CCO guides cultural heritage professionals in the selection of terms and the order, syntax, and form that descriptive data should take within a data structure (Baca et al., 2006, p. 1). Providing guidance and standardization for the data within a data structure is as important for quality and interoperability as is the standardization of the data structure itself.

CCO has a distinctive concept of what constitutes a work. In CCO, a work is “a distinct intellectual or artistic creation limited primarily to objects and structures made by humans, including built works, visual art works, and cultural artifacts” (Baca et al., 2006, p. 4).

CCO was designed to work with the CDWA and the VRA Core Categories, but can also be used with other structural metadata (Harpring, 2007, p. 34). Historically, CCO evolved from CDWA. This is a marked difference from other content standards such as AACR2, which preceded the creation of corresponding container metadata. CCO was created in the context of container standards being the norm. This standard focuses on descriptive metadata, leaving the administrative and technical elements to CDWA or other structures (Harpring, 2007, p. 34).

CCO is divided into three parts – general guidelines, cataloging rules for work and image elements, and authority work. There are four authority categories in CCO: personal and corporate names, geographic place names, concepts, and subjects. The concept of authorities for names aids in the interoperability of metadata. Agreement on a certain designation for a person, group, place, concept, or subject helps the metadata make sense in context. CCO has core elements that are required or highly recommended, and allows for variation by institution. CCO, like CDWA and VRA, is designed to account for relationships between works.

CCO can be described more as a set of guidelines than a set of rules (Beacom, 2007, p. 82). This traces from its origins, as CCO sought to bring together metadata communities that did not have as long a shared history of a common set of rules as libraries did for textual resources. Its comprehensiveness and flexibility may be a key to widespread adoption as a standard. CCO works well with CDWA Lite and VRA Core 4.0 ‒ in fact, CDWA Lite was designed to be CCO’s technical counterpart (Boughida, 2005, p. 53). Becoming familiar with CCO will increase your ability to interact with cultural heritage metadata from other institutions.

Elements

The element definitions contained in this section come from CDWA Lite: Specification 1.1, which is maintained by the Getty Research Institute. The specification contains definitions for the 19 descriptive elements and three administrative elements. In addition to the top level elements, there are 28 sub-elements, many of which have sub-elements themselves.

The following list outlines the 19 descriptive elements, 3 administrative elements, and 28 sub-elements. The required elements are in italics. Information on the sub-elements of the sub-elements can be found in the element definitions.
