OK so far on our tour of Collections Online we’ve covered Objects and Topics. These wouldn’t exist without people.
People and organisations
Artists and makers, collectors, historical figures; basically people and organisations that are related to the objects or topics in the collection.
- Take a look at the record for Leslie Adkin;
- Or maybe you’re interested in the naturalist, Daniel Solander?
- Or maybe the artist Frances Hodgkins.
At these pages you can see basic biographical information, and all the topics and Collection Objects that relate to the person in question. You can filter objects by relationship such as see those that depict the person, or the objects the person made, or once owned, and so on. You’ll also see other instiutions or organisations content that relates to that person via the DigitalNZ results at the right of the page.
We’ve also got a few plans on how better to link to sources of info on artists and historical figures.
