Throughout the Europeana conference, we invite you to support multilinguality, openGLAM and the public domain by helping us translate two of our key policy documents on the matter: the Public Domain Usage Guidelines and the Public Domain Charter. Read on to discover the why and how!
This month, Europeana Pro looks at how the public domain contributes to the re-use of cultural heritage and explores different aspects of open access. Europeana Collections Manager Douglas McCarthy has interviewed a number of cultural heritage professionals about open access for Europeana Pro, but today he tells us more about his own research and the global picture of Open GLAM.
The principle that works in the public domain should remain in the public domain once digitised, which Europeana has defended for almost ten years, was recently incorporated into European law. In this post, we interview Dr. Andrea Wallace, Lecturer in Law at the University of Exeter, about the importance of this provision for the cultural heritage sector and her research on Article 14.
