New WorldFAIR Project Deliverable 13.1 ‘Cultural Heritage Mapping Report:
Practices and Policies supporting Cultural Heritage image sharing
platforms’ outlines current practices guiding online digital image sharing
by institutions charged with providing care and access to cultural memory,
in order to identify how these practices may be adapted to promote and
support the FAIR principles for data sharing.

This report looks closely at the policies and best practices endorsed by a
range of professional bodies and institutions representative of Galleries,
Libraries, Archives and Museums (the ‘GLAMs’) which facilitate
the acquisition and delivery, discovery, description, digitisation
standards and preservation of digital image collections. The second half of
the report further highlights the technical mechanisms for aggregating and
exchanging images that have already produced a high degree of image
interoperability in the sector with a survey of six national and
international image sharing platforms: DigitalNZ, Digital Public Library of
America (DPLA), Europeana, Wikimedia Commons, Internet Archive and Flickr.

This report will be a valuable resource in producing recommendations for
aligning existing professional practice in the sector with the FAIR
principles – a key milestone for the case study.
The report concludes with some thoughts on the position of the Digital
Repository of Ireland (DRI) as an image sharing platform within this
landscape, as a stewarding repository for both cultural heritage
organisations in Ireland seeking to preserve and make accessible their
collections as well as research projects curating, examining, preparing and
delivering cultural heritage data for reuse. At the end of the WorldFAIR
project, the DRI will aim to have tested and implemented recommendations
that align established collections delivery mechanisms to facilitate the
use of cultural heritage images as research data, improving the
findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of Ireland’s
visual cultural memory.
