  "description": "<p>Archives, libraries and museums preserve collections containing diverse material.<br />\nIn managing these collections different standards are used, each developed<br />\ninside their own professional community. While searching for material<br />\npreserved in different institutions users shouldn&rsquo;t stumble over inability to<br />\ncope with different descriptive standards and access points defined by these<br />\nstandards. As this research suggests, the path to any kind of interoperability<br />\nstarts with people who implement standards. This exploratory study investigates<br />\ncurators&rsquo; understandings of archival and documentary materials held in<br />\ntheir museums (i.e. rather than in archives) by analyzing and describing their<br />\nattitude towards records that surround them in their daily professional practice.</p>",
