The paper offers short analytic survey and comparison between the standard for description of cultural objects, CIDOC-CRM (ISO 21127:2006) and museum passports, inventory books and files, all of which are used in documenting museum artifacts in Bulgaria since 50-s. Three different field-sets have been explored. The fields in use are more than 100. Several case studies and good practices which use CIDOC-CRM, CRMdig, SPECTRUM, LIDO and EDM are shown. The result from their comparison with Bulgarian practices is presented in a table, where 25 fields, taken from Bulgarian passports are listed with respect to three factors: (1) metadata type they are representing, (structural, administrative or descriptive), (2) their corresponding category/class as found in (2) CIDOC-CRM and in (3) EDM. The author is using this correspondence frame for creating a CIDOC-CRM-based referent ontology for description of Bulgarian museum artefacts. A detailed model, based on this frame will be created, with terminology thesaurus attached.
