Here, we collect publications to help you with your digital archiving practice – making it easy for you to find relevant reports, records, tender dossiers and tech blogs from meemoo itself.
Lots of collections currently have hardly any descriptive metadata, which limits the findability and searchability of their content and prevents them from being reused. Adding metadata manually is also very time-consuming task, which is why we’ve set up two projects to investigate what possibilities artificial intelligence can offer for automatic metadata creation. This technology needs to be treated with caution, however. In this tech blog, we take a close look at the legal and ethical challenges.

Public Domain Day 2022

Public domain collections are collections that can be accessed online without any issues, which makes them ideal for starting to implement your open data policy. Every year, Public Domain Day offers organisations in the heritage sector a platform where they can share their achievements, challenges and visions for providing access to collections which are no longer protected by copyright. We organised a webinar around these issues on 10 February – together with KBR (Royal Library of Belgium), Wikimedia Belgium, Ghent University Library and Collections of Ghent.
We receive more and more helpdesk requests in our virtual letterbox every year. In 2020, we counted almost 300 requests for advice from over 150 different people and organisations. But who actually calls on our services, what requests do they make, and what do they think of us? We explain everything here.
Meemoo was a partner in this project, which is a follow-up to the feasibility study ‘Depositing digital publications from Flanders’ in 2014.
