Call for Participation in Exposing and Linking Cultural Heritage data Community Group

The Exposing and Linking Cultural Heritage data Community Group has been launched:

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 ( , HuNI (, Europeana ( and CLARIAH ( 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.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2015-06-04 by Christophe Gueret. The following people supported its creation: Christophe Gueret, Rinke Hoekstra, Richard Zijdeman, Victor de Boer, Mo McRoberts, Olivier Thereaux. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
