Free webinar - Cultural Objects Name Authority

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 Gettys 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.
