What is ARROW?
ARROW is a tool to assist libraries and others in identifying rights, authors and publishers and rights status in copyright text and image based works in a streamlined and automated way through querying a network of data sources.
What is ARROW Plus?
ARROW Plus is a Best Practice Network project selected under the European Commission's Competitiveness and innovation framework programme, running from 1 April 2011 till 30 September 2013. ARROW Plus builds on and further implements the ARROW system, which it aims at refining after the piloting phase in Germany, France, Spain and United Kingdom. The objectives are also to increase the number of countries in which ARROW is used; and broadening the types of works for which it is used to include visual material. Under ARROW Plus a legal entity will be constituted to prepare for the implementation of the business model. The project contributes to the goal of the European Commission and European Parliament to make European cultural heritage legally accessible through an innovative way of establishing rights status in and facilitating rights clearance of copyright works.
