Cultural Heritage in a Digital Europe
11 November 2014
IFLA will be represented by Stuart Hamilton, IFLA Deputy Secretary General
An event co-hosted by MEP Julia Reda, Greens/EFA, Pirate Party and MEP Josef Weidenholzer, S&D
Europe is proud of its rich cultural heritage. Institutions like museums, libraries and archives play critical and rightly well-respected roles in society. The digital revolution has brought new challenges to these institutions. Too often, they face technical and contractual barriers to the digitalization, access, use and reuse of works. Many are calling for an adaptation of the international legal framework for copyright in order to continue fulfilling their missions of education, research and lending of materials in the digital environment.
