    Brooklyn Museum Posse:
    Exploring the collection

    When you join the posse, your tags comments and favorites will display with your attribution and save to your profile.

    The Brooklyn Museum must ensure that digital representations of our pieces are properly attributed. Any time you display one of our images you must satisfy one of the following conditions:

    Link Back

    All OBJECT and EXHIBITION responses have a uri attribute that may be used to link to the relevant page on the Brooklyn Museum Web site.

    Field Attribution

    If you don't use the Link Back method, there are specific fields that must be displayed or made readily accessible. The set of required fields varies by by item type. For object images, you must display the following values:

    title,, object_date, medium, dimensions, credit_line, accession_number, "Brooklyn Museum"

    When displaying exhibition images you must display these field values:

    title, start_date, end_date, "Brooklyn Museum"

    Quick Caption

    For convenience, we can provide a "quick caption" as part of image responses. These captions provide all of the attribution information required by the image in a single formatted, plain-text string. To enable captions in the images returned, set include_item_caption to "true" in your method request. Note that if you rely completely on preformatted captions, you should set include_item_fields to "false" in your method request to suppress field data in the response as the field data will be of no use to you.

    If you have questions or would like to discuss your implementation with us, please contact us at
