Cataloging Standards for Historical Costume

Hi Folks,

A new contact, Nichole DeMichelis, works at the Society for the Museum of Original Costume in Vancouver. She had some questions about cataloging historical costume items, and I’m hoping someone out there can help!

“I’m working with the Society for the Museum of Original Costume (SMOC) in Vancouver, BC as the Virtual Museum Liason. I’m working slowly but surely to digitize the records and move them into a database. I was just wondering what vocabularies are standard when cataloging historical costume. We’ve been following ICOM Costume Committee, but it’s a bit unwieldy. Also, what cataloging standard(s) do you use? SMOC has been using SPECTRUM, a strange standard I hadn’t encountered previously. “
