Cataloguing Cultural Objects (CCO)
CCO provides guidelines for selecting, ordering, and formatting data used to populate catalogue records. CCO is designed to promote good descriptive cataloguing, shared documentation, and enhanced end-user access. Whether used locally to develop training manuals, or universally as a guide to building consistent cultural heritage documentation in a shared environment, CCO will contribute to improved documentation and enhanced access to cultural heritage information.
This content standard is still in draft form (June 2005). The draft is online at the project web page and comments are welcomed.
