Workshop on metadata (standards) for FAIR heritage research

20 February 2023

Are you a data steward, data manager, or researcher in the heritage sciences? Are you or will you be responsible for managing research data derived from the analysis of cultural heritage collections or objects, and would you like to store your data “FAIR” so that they can be better found and (re)used by others? Then sign up for the E-RIHS workshop on metadata for FAIR heritage research.

In principle, the language of instruction is Dutch, but English-speaking participants will be taken into account during the presentations. Non-Dutch speaking participants are expected to understand Dutch to some extent. Questions and discussions can be asked and conducted in the language preferred by the participants.

The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS), is a European network that gives heritage researchers access to the infrastructure of laboratory facilities, research data, knowledge and expertise. The Dutch section of E-RIHS facilitates this development on a national level through various projects and training courses. Research data obviously play an important role in the development of E-RIHS. To make research data easy to exchange and reusable, or Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR), metadata are essential.

The E-RIHS workshop on metadata (data about data), provides an introduction to generic and more specialised metadata in heritage research. Tools to optimally use metadata, such as vocabularies and thesauri, will also be discussed. Experts from organisations such as the Royal Library and the Netherlands Institute for Art History, share their knowledge and experience and the workshop includes several interactive sessions.

More info, date and location:

The workshop will take place in the afternoon of Tuesday 14 March, in one of the historic rooms of the Trippenhuis in Amsterdam, headquarters of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).

The workshop is part of an project, coordinated by DANS in cooperation with the Netwerk Digitaal Erfgoed (NDE) and VHIC Faculty.
