Are you a professional working in the Cultural Heritage sector, interested
in exploring how your institution or research area could improve the
findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of the digital
images you collect and create? The DRI is opening a call for participation
for a short-term Working Group, which will meet over a 5 month period from
January to May 2023, to review and refine a set of recommendations for
aligning practices across the Cultural Heritage sector with the FAIR
principles for data sharing <https://www.go-fair.org/fair-principles/>. *The
DRI is particularly keen to add members to the Working Group from currently
underrepresented regions: **South America, Australasia and Africa, though
any interested parties should get in touch.*

These recommendations are being produced as part of the WorldFAIR Project
<https://worldfair-project.eu/>, a major global collaboration between
partners from thirteen countries across Africa, Australasia, Europe, and
North and South America.  WorldFAIR will advance the implementation of the
FAIR data principles, in particular those for Interoperability, by
developing a cross-domain interoperability framework and recommendations
for FAIR assessment in a set of eleven disciplines or cross-disciplinary
research areas. The DRI is leading the WorldFAIR case study for Cultural

The DRI invites expressions of interest from (but not limited to) the
following areas of work:

   - Librarians
   - Archivists
   - Museum professionals
   - Researchers
   - Digital Preservationists
   - Data Stewards
   - IT Professionals
   - Digital Asset Managers
   - Industry

Interested parties should contact Beth Knazook at b.knazook at ria.ie for more
information as soon as possible, and no later than Friday 10 March.
