Cultural Objects Name Authority Webinar

A webinar on the Cultural Objects Name Authority has been announced.
The Museum Computer Network (MCN), Gallery Systems, and the J. Paul Getty Trust are pleased to offer a free Webinar on a new vocabulary under development, the Cultural Objects Name Authority™ (CONA).

"Introducing the Getty’s new Cultural Objects Name Authority™ (CONA)" Tuesday, May 4, 2010 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM EDT

The Cultural Objects Name Authority™ (CONA) is a new Getty vocabulary currently under development. It is scheduled for introduction to the contributor community in 2011. CONA will join the other three Getty vocabularies, the Art & Architecture Thesaurus® (AAT), the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names® (TGN), and the Union List of Artist Names® (ULAN), as a tool for cataloging and retrieval of art information. CONA will contain titles, current location, and other core information for cultural works. The scope of CONA will include architecture and movable works such as paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, ceramics, textiles, furniture, and archaeological artifacts. Murtha Baca, Head of Digital Art History Access at the Getty Research Institute, and Patricia Harpring, Managing Editor of the Getty Vocabulary Program, will present an introduction to CONA and will be available for questions.
