Patricia Young began her museum career in 1975 with Parks Canada, where she held curatorial and management positions before managing a three-year project to automate the distributed collections held by National Historic Parks and Sites into one national system. In 1990, she joined the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) as Chief, Documentation Research, and was responsible for documentation standards, users groups, national inventories, and research databases. Ms. Young was also involved in the design and development of CHIN’s Web environment. Later, as Chief of Business Development, in addition to standards and database work, she was responsible for the development of two new Internet products—the Heritage Forum, an interactive journal for heritage professionals, and the Guide to Canadian Museums and Galleries, a community-built multimedia guide. Ms. Young has done bilingual standards work in Canada and has been a member of the Art & Architecture Thesaurus International Terminology Working Group since 1990. She is an active member of the International Committee for Documentation (CIDOC) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), of which is the current Secretary. Ms. Young recently joined the Getty Information Institute as Head of the newly restructured Vocabulary Program and is responsible for the Art & Architecture Thesaurus, the Union List of Artist Names, and the Thesaurus of Geographic Names.
