Maritime heritage is a concern for many stakeholders. Eight maritime museums have therefore a collaborative effort on joint name authorities and vocabulary so as to enable coherent descriptions of maritime heritage.
Collaborative bodies include:
Aust-Agder Museum and Archives, Museum of Bohuslän, part of Västarvet, The Norwegian Maritime Museum, part of the Norwegian Folk Museum,
Maritime Museum and Aquarium in Gothenburg, The Maritime Museum on Åland and National Maritime Museums in Sweden, which consists of the Naval Museum, the Maritime Museum and Vasa Museum.
The objective of our cooperation is to provide improved quality, searchability and usability of information surrounding maritime heritage. Please use the name authorities and vocabulary and contact Malin Joakimson (Malin.Joakimson@maritima.se) if you and your department wish to participate in the cooperation.
Terms which are in conformity with Wikidata are connected to this dataset so as to facilitate linkage and searchability. Please contact us if there is anything you miss.
