Europeana publiceert Licensing Framework en White Paper

21 december 2011

Onlangs heeft Europeana twee belangrijke documenten gepubliceerd: het Europeana Licensing Framework en een tweede White Paper 'The Problem of the Yellow Milkmaid'.

Europeana Licensing Framework
Uit de berichtgeving van Europeana over het Europeana Licensing Framework:

"The Europeana Licensing Framework is the fulfilment of two years' work in EuropeanaConnect. It establishes the co-ordinates of Europeana's position on open data, the public domain, and users' rights and responsibilities. The goal of the Framework is to standardise rights-related information and practices. Its intention is to explain this complex area and make transparent the relationship between providers of cultural heritage information and people who want to use it.

The new Europeana Data Exchange Agreement is at the heart of the Licensing Framework. All aspects of the DEA are clearly explained and there is full information about the use of previews and the display of rights information. The Framework sets out what the Exchange Agreement is trying to achieve with its emphasis on open data. We continue to encourage partners to sign the new Agreement ( in order that we can open the dataset in July 2012 for new apps and Linked Open Data initiatives."

White Paper
Over het White Paper 'The Problem of the Yellow Milkmaid: a Business Model perspective on Open Metadata' bericht Europeana:

"This second White Paper 'The Problem of the Yellow Milkmaid: a Business Model perspective on Open Metadata' ( is published to meet a growing need among our partners for a new business model that weighs the current digital opportunities against traditional concerns about ownership and control. It makes recommendations that will guide further investigation and concludes that "the benefits of open data sharing and open distribution... outweigh the risks".

The White Paper is the culmination of more than 20 workshops we’ve been holding during the past year and which over 200 partners have attended. It features Case Studies which include organisations that are in the vanguard of open data, such as Yale University, the German National Library, Cambridge University and the British Museum."
