How the Europeana services comply with the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable).

To celebrate Public Domain Day 2022 in Indonesia, Goethe-Institut Jakarta, Wikimedia Indonesia, and Creative Commons Indonesia are organizing the online seminar “Europeana & the FAIR Principles” (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable).

The Europeana platform and its APIs offer access to digital cultural heritage coming from over 3,700 content providers, especially libraries, museums and archives. Europeana Research fosters its reuse with digital methods and tools in academia and research, particularly in the social sciences and humanities.

This lecture will address how the Europeana services comply with the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable) and how Europeana advocates for the wider adoption of these principles in the cultural heritage sector, including best practices and data quality analysis that can meet the needs of both content providers and users.
