Sharing data with Europeana comes with the obligation to assign the digital object a rights statement. This is a piece of information in the metadata which describes the extent to which someone can use the digital object. While this may sound like a simple step, it often raises many questions that need to be answered to make the correct choice.
In order to build knwoledge and capacity across various heritage domains, a new series of webinars will take place throughout the autumn and winter of 2020-2021, to help data partners and cultural heritage institutions navigate the topic of copyright when submitting data to Europeana.
The webinars were developed in collaboration with the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum (EAF), the Europe-wide network of data partners enabling cultural heritage institutions to share their content with Europeana and open it up to new audiences. Topics were selected through conversations with individual aggregators and the EAF Steering Group, and will focus on the frameworks and standards which Europeana and data partners work with. We will dive into some key questions regarding managing copyright in cultural heritage institutions, and share relevant examples and best practices. The webinars are open to all, including professionals from institutions which do not share data with Europeana.
