Pete Johnston

Content development officer, Archives Hub


I am a content development officer for the Archives Hub. My main focus is on the processes by which data is brought into the hub, checked and normalised, and those by which it is made available from the hub to other applications.


I have a long-standing interest in approaches to the exchange of data that build on the design principles of the web, particularly in the domains of archives, museums and libraries.

I have participated in the work of standards organisations, and I am a co-author/co-editor of specifications published by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative and the Open Archives Initiative.
