From Concept to Concrete: Achieving Interoperability Through Linked Open Data in Film Archives and Beyond

Thursday, June 28th, 11.30 – 13.30
@ MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, Conference Hall, via Don Minzoni 14

Workshop promoted by Cinematek (Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique, Bruxelles), MoMA – The Museum of Modern Art, New York and supported by FIAF (International Federation of Film Archives) and IBC (Istituto per i beni artistici culturali e naturali della Regione Emilia-Romagna).

Participants:

  • Bram Biesbrouck (Republic of Reinvention)
  • Nicola Mazzanti (Cinematek)
  • Francesca Ricci (IBC), Thelma Ross (MoMA)

Why is interoperability so difficult for film archives to achieve? Efforts along these lines have often resulted in complete failure or imperfect results.
What if we just haven’t had the right solution until now?
Isn’t it worth taking a look if it means your institution can finally and more completely fulfill its goal to provide access to its collections, both film and film-related materials?
Linked Open Data may be the way forward and this workshop will present ideas, arguments, and concrete developments that should help you understand its potential as well as the resources available to help you start using it.

(English) New website

Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain. Pour le confort de l’utilisateur, le contenu est affiché ci-dessous dans une autre langue. Vous pouvez cliquer le lien pour changer de langue active.

Because ACE had to close down the secretariat in Frankfurt it became necessary to move the ACE website to a new home from DIF’s servers. Since the website was running some really old software it also needed a technical overhaul.

This website is now hosted on a server in Amazon’s cloud and sports a new layout which is responsive so it should work nicely on mobile devices too.

The content is the same with only some minor corrections. Once we’re running in full speed we hope to add some new stuff – especially preparing for the GA in Bologna. That is set to take place on 27 June at 2 p.m., save the date!

Reports on any anomalies of the new site are welcome. Please send any comments via email to me at mikko.kuutti@kavi.fi.

In NoAcces_FHI worksvember 2016 the European Audiovisual Observatory has carried out a survey among the members of the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes. The objective was to assess the access to the film works in their collections in the context of education and research. 32 ACE members replied to the survey, representing over 1.1million film works.

The  study « Access to film works in the collections of Film Heritage Institutions in the context of education and research » was part of a research project supported by the European Commission. » It can be downloaded HERE.

ACE workshop « Collection Management Systems in the 21th Century, Bologna, 27/06/2017

Following the success of the joint FIAF/ACE Workshop “Metadata Management in Film Archives: Putting the Cinematographic Works Standard EN 15907 to use and introducing the new FIAF Cataloguing Manual” (ZEM Potsdam, March 29-30, 2017), it was very clear that most film archives share a set of questions and problems that are worth discussing as a community.
The ACE Workshop traditionally organized in Bologna is the perfect occasion to continue this discussion and to delve deeper into some of the issues:
For many decades, the range of choices was limited: film archives’ databases were all more or less relational databases, simple, basic tools developed painfully for years… Metadata rules were simple, we just followed the FIAF’s Cataloguing Rules. If your archive was big and rich, there was one collection management software available for purchase, used everywhere… But now, all this is gone, leaving film archives with more questions and fewer answers …. What should a management tool for film and non-film collections look like in the 21st century? What should it be able to do? Shouldn’t we, as a community, find a way to create the tools we need?

Date: Tuesday, 27/06/2017, 9:30-12:30h

Venue: MAMbo (Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna), via Don Minzoni, 14

Registration: Attendance is to the workshop is free, but places are limited. Please register HERE

9:30
“Extending the FIAF Moving Image Cataloguing Manual and FIAF Glossaries using LoD »
The FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission has set up a Task Force to define and deliver an agenda to augment and extend the FIAF Moving Image Cataloguing Manual with Linked Open Data resources, and to transform the FIAF Glossaries to LoD. What are the objectives and where will the task force go from here?
Stephen McConnachie (BFI), presented by Anna Fiaccarini  (Cinteca di Bologna) and Bram Biesbrouck (Cinémathèque royale de Belgique) –  Presentation (pdf)

10:00
“Collection management tools for non-film collections”
How do archives currently store, archive and annotate non-film objects like magazines, pictures, clothing, objects, etc? How is the metadata managed? Is it linked to the film collection(s)? What kind of tools do we need?
Anna Fiaccarini (Cineteca di Bologna)  –  Presentation (pdf)

10:30
“Practical introduction to LOD and how to apply it to film archives”
Everybody is talking about LOD, but what is it exactly and how can it be used by Film archives? What’s the big difference with relational databases? What are the advantages of
linking to internal and external ontologies? An example of its application is the CRB new collection management for film and non-film, including long term digital preservation.
Bram Biesbrouck and Bruno Mestdagh (Cinémathèque royale de Belgique)

11:00
Coffee Break

11:30
“A community-based approach, and benefits of sharing knowledge and development. Is this the way to go for our community of film archives?”

For years, archives have been developing solutions to manage their film and non-film collections, each one separately from all colleagues. Shouldn’t we change our approach and combine forces to create  tools that are designed for and by the community?
Nacho Lahoz Rodrigo (IVAC), Nicola Mazzanti (ACE, CRB) – Presentation (pdf)
