Download PDF Read Online

The paper describes the efforts taking place in the Cross-institutional Authority Collaboration (Institutionenübergreifende Integration von Normdaten, IN2N) project. This pilot project, executed in cooperation of the German National Library and the German Film Institute, aims to establish new collaboration models to improve cross-domain authority maintenance. The paper outlines applied strategies for making a shared infrastructure available as well as workflows for exchanging data about persons; interface enhancements to benefit from innovative web approaches; and cross-institutional data search and representation solutions. Furthermore, we discuss specific boundary conditions for an interoperable cataloguing environment.
