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.
