    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Archives, libraries and museums preserve collections containing diverse material.&lt;br /&gt;
In managing these collections different standards are used, each developed&lt;br /&gt;
inside their own professional community. While searching for material&lt;br /&gt;
preserved in different institutions users shouldn&amp;rsquo;t stumble over inability to&lt;br /&gt;
cope with different descriptive standards and access points defined by these&lt;br /&gt;
standards. As this research suggests, the path to any kind of interoperability&lt;br /&gt;
starts with people who implement standards. This exploratory study investigates&lt;br /&gt;
curators&amp;rsquo; understandings of archival and documentary materials held in&lt;br /&gt;
their museums (i.e. rather than in archives) by analyzing and describing their&lt;br /&gt;
attitude towards records that surround them in their daily professional practice.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
