Participate in Joconde, collective catalogue of the collections of the museums of France
Joconde is the collective catalogue of collections of museums in France. It is a public, institutional, national and free dissemination tool available to museums in France. It is commissioned by the Ministry of Culture on POP, an open heritage platform.
The collections of France’s museums online on POP, an open heritage platform
The publication of records and images in the Mona Lisa database is reserved for museums with the name «Musée de France» as defined in the Heritage Code.
Museum data are published on thePOP broadcast interface, open heritage platform.
More responsible operation
Museums in France can now take full ownership of this new public, institutional, national and free dissemination tool and integrate it as the natural outcome of the study and management of their collections.
Since the official launch of POP in March 2019, museums in France have been autonomous to create and modify records which are their responsibility.
If the administrators of Mona Lisa continue, on the one hand, the contribution of methodological advice to museums in favour of harmonizing data at all stages of their computerization and publication, and intensify, on the other hand, the progressive administration and mutualisation of lists of authorities, it is now the museums of France that load, control, adjust and distribute their notices and images on the collective catalogue.
After the creation of its producer account on the production interface, the museum undertakes to respect the general conditions of use of POP and the charter of participation in Joconde. He can then load and modify the records and images, under his responsibility, previously extracted from his collection management tool. Des tutorials are there to help her. The publication of notices is immediate on the POP broadcast interface, as well as any modifications.
Museums are therefore fully responsible for the data quality on-line updates on the collective catalogue: volume and nature, frequency of creation or update of notices, suitability for the reference systems, respect for intellectual property and personal data, etc.
The data published on the collective catalogue of collections of museums in France are taken from the computer tools of museums.
Technical information specifies the text data and image formats to be imported on the POP platform.
