  8. 8. Open (meta)Data and Open Content
  9. 9. Why Open? Because most metadata are facts and facts are not copyrightable  Titles, dates, identifiers, factual descriptions etc. Because a large proportion of cultural content is out of copyright  The creators are a lot of dead (70+ years) white guys… Because the citizen has already (in most cases) paid for it once Because our mission is to increase public access and re-use and Open Data, Open Content and Open Access facilitates that  Tip: Use CC-BY-SA if you have in copyright content that you don’t want others to exclusively commercially re-use
  10. 10. All metadata Open, some content Open All the metadata (descriptions of media objects) is CC0 and so free for any reuse Media objects individually licenced or marked as being in the Public Domain  Must only be reused according to its licence  Not all Europeana objects have an explicit licence but we’re working to gradually improve that Check out our Terms of Use&Policies And read our Licensing Framework in full (PDF)
  11. 11. The media object licence in displayClick thislicence badge!  And if you’re using the API this licence can be found in the field europeana:rights (API v.1) or edm:rights (API v.2)
  12. 12. Current licence distribution in Europeana  We’ve launched a rights labelling campaign to improve this!
  13. 13. The Europeana Licensing Framework The Framework consists of: Europeana Data Exchange Agreement Creative Commons Zero Universal Public Domain Dedication (CC0 waiver) for metadata Europeana Data Use Guidelines Europeana Terms for User Contributions EDM:rights field of the Europeana Data Model for content/media These elements ensure all data can be aggregated and freely re-used.
  14. 14. The Europeana API
  15. 15. Not only a portal, but also an API! What’s in the portal is also available in the API
  16. 16. The Europeana API API v.1 in production since early 2011 API v.2 to be released in March but is already in beta • Sign-up and get started with your implementation • When released API v.1 will be supported but won’t be developed further API v.2 allows a developer to programmatically access all search and retrieval functions available in the portal Our latest (API2) partner implementation is from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) search service OpenAGRIS  Search e.g. for pesticides or olea europaea (latin for olive tree) The API allows our partners and third parties to build specialized applications using all or selections of our functionality and content  And in so doing they can adapt Europeana content to their user’s needs and requirements. As FAO has done.
