Knowledge about accessible content
We believe that content is worth more when it’s shared, and new creations can be conceived. That’s why we want to encourage others to share their content as openly as possible. In addition to providing tools and infrastructure, we also support cultural organisations and their partners by developing and sharing knowledge to make their content available to as wide an audience as possible.
An important condition for public access is having the right documentation for copyrights and privacy restrictions, and we aim to formulate specific advice and guidelines for this. We also consult on linked data, IIIF and Wikimedia. You can find more information about these techniques and developments on our CEST knowledge platform.

We’ll be happy to help you further if you can’t find an answer to your question. Providing advice about digital cultural heritage processes is one of our core tasks. Read here how we can help you further.
Do you want to dive in straight away? We organise various training sessions on accessible content, such as an annual training activity for Public Domain Day and an open cultural data bootcamp. You can find our upcoming activities in our calendar.
At meemoo, we support projects run by partners and cultural, media and heritage organisations. We help make content accessible via Wikimedia platforms, and choose the most suitable rights declarations and licences.
For example, we’ve already been involved in:
datahub projects (‘Implementation of a datahub for museums within the context of a reference architecture’) and the IIIF images infrastructure (‘IIIF image infrastructure linked to the VKC-DATAHUB’) run by the Flemish Art Collection which various arts museums belong to;
‘Cinema RURAL. A Belgian and European directory of moving images of agriculture and rural life’ by the Agricultural Heritage Centre (CAG) which KADOC is a member of, among others.
MoMu projects on image recognition (‘Visual Recognition for Cultural Heritage – MoMu Pilot (VR4CH)’) and FOMU (‘Operationalisation of image recognition in registration practice’). Image recognition results in better metadata, which improves access to the content in question.
