Nomenclature 4.0 for Museum Cataloging is an updated and expanded edition of Robert G. Chenhall's system for classifying man-made objects, originally published in 1978. The Chenhall system is the standard cataloging tool for thousands of museums and historical organizations across the United States and Canada. For this fourth edition, hundreds of new terms have been added, and every category, class, sub-class, and object term has been reviewed and revised as needed by a professional task force appointed by the American Association for State and Local History. * AASLH History News *
Though it comes only a few years after the previous edition, Nomenclature 4.0 is needed to respond to the rapidly changing nature of museum collections. Collecting digital objects has become unavoidable and Nomenclature 4.0 provides a standardized taxonomy for digital collections. Museums collecting smartphones, tablets, video games, born-digital photographs and other recent technologies will find this edition invaluable. -- Corinne Midgett, registrar of High Point Museum, North Carolina
