This January we look at how the public domain contributes to the re-use of cultural heritage and explore different aspects of open acces. In this post, we begin by highlighting which of the more than ten million public domain works accessible through Europeana were viewed the most last year.
As part of Europeana’s Collection Day initiative, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin, Ireland, have now hosted their fifth collection day, the last of which was part of the Europe at Work season.
We talk to Senior Curator, Nathan Mannion, about EPIC’s latest Europe at Work Collection Day, 9-10 November 2019, reflecting on his collection day experience and recommendations.
The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market entered into force in June 2019. It creates many new opportunities for the cultural heritage sector, and Europeana was part of the discussions to ensure that would be the case. The ball is now in the member states’ court: the Directive needs to be implemented by June 2021. We tell you about the road ahead and how Europeana can support you along the way.
