In regard to acronyms and vocabularies, there's also ODLIS
http://www.abc-clio.com/ODLIS/odlis_A.aspx and the new DAM Glossary
http://damglossary.org/, which is really a thesaurus. =-)

Cheers,

 PS - on a more helpful note - as well as technical acronyms that people
 working in museums may come across, this can helpfully extend to include
 museum acronyms that technical people working with museums may encounter.
 I
 think of the Venn diagram of museums and tech - there are acronyms from
 both
 worlds, and some which arise in the intersection area, which some museum
 people won't have encountered before, and some tech people won't have
 either.

 Off the top of my head:

 Tech acronyms that might be useful for museum people includes
 JP2
 PTIF
 ConMS
 ColMS
 DAMS
 Solr
 CRM
 AWS
 XML
 JSON
 REST
 API
 OCR
 LOD
 RDF
 DRM
 UUID

 Museums-for-tech-people includes
 TGN
 AAT
 DACS
 VAGA
 ARS
 AAMD
 RTI
 ROI! (sorry)

 Somewhere in the middle includes
 METS
 TEI
 AIP
 ALTO
 EAD
 LIDO
 CIDOC-CRM
 OAIS
 OAI-PMH
 DCMI
 BagIt
 PREMIS


 My head feels better without that lot on top of it.

 Okay, I couldn't resist this call-out.



 Back in the day I had a brief foray at Eastman Kodak Company before their
 ill-fated attempt to move to digital.



 As the TWAIN API is probably still used in Museums for digital imaging,
 and while arguable there is general consensus that intended or not, TWAIN
 is considered an acronym for Technology Without An Interesting Name.  One
 of my all-time favs  : )

Carissa et al.,

Not sure I saw CCO, CDWA, AACR2, CONA, DNG, XMP, and a few personal
favorites (maybe a little obscure for this project), FRBR (and the verb
form FRBRize), LOCKSS and CLOCKSS. Don't forget the old standby RTFM, and
perhaps most relevant, PCMCIA (people can't memorize computer industry
acronyms).
