Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

The wealth of data about cultural heritage collections held within
archives world-wide is of great interest for humanities research and
education activities. Yet this data is too often hard to find, created
in isolated silos and poorly documented. Large projects such as RES
(https://bbcarchdev.github.io/res/) , HuNI (https://huni.net.au),
Europeana (http://www.europeana.eu) and CLARIAH (http://www.clariah.nl/)
express a clear need for making that data easier to find, link and
consume. The mission of this community group is to discuss which
standards are needed to facilitate this process. The aim is to produce
recommendations for cultural heritage data exposure using the work of
RES, HuNI, Europeana and CLARIAH as a starting point.

Thank you,
