Acquiring metadata to support biographies of museum artefacts

Abstract
Museum collections are primarily experienced in physical museums. Metadata and linked data have the potential to support new models of interaction with heritage objects outside museums. Object biographies are a conceptual lens through which to view object metadata. We explore the concept of object biography through an interview-based study of selected artefacts from local New Zealand museums. We discuss how the nature of this metadata can support new object-centric interaction in the wider environment.
