LIDO is an XML harvesting schema. The schema is intended for delivering metadata, for use in a variety of online services, from an organization’s online collections database to portals of aggregated resources, as well as exposing, sharing and connecting data on the web. It is not intended to be used as a basis for a collection management system or to support loan and acquisition activities.
LIDO is an XML schema intended for delivering metadata, for use in a variety of online services, from an organization’s collections database to portals of aggregated resources, as well as exposing, sharing and connecting data on the web. Its strength lies in its ability to support the typical range of descriptive information about objects of material culture. It can be used for all kinds of object, e.g. art, cultural, technology and natural science and supports multilingual portal environments.
The strength of LIDO lies in its ability to support the full range of descriptive information about museum objects. It can be used for all kinds of object, e.g. art, architecture, cultural history, history of technology, and natural history.
The LIDO schema is the result of a substantial redesign and enhancement of the CDWA Lite and museumdat schemas based on recommendations of the CDWA Lite/museumdat Working Group, community feedback and further CIDOC-CRM analysis. It includes additional concepts to meet SPECTRUM requirements.
For the full history of LIDO developments refer to [lido-schema.org/schema/v1.0/lido-v1.0-specification.pdf](http://www.lido-schema.org/schema/v1.0/lido-v1.0-specification.pdf), 2.3 History of the schema.
LIDO supports multilingual portal environments. It does this by having a language attribute that can be associated with each element, or more generally, with the group of descriptive elements for fully multilingual resources.
LIDO v1.1 further develops and is backwards compatible with LIDO v1.0.
