Science meets Heritage
On 26 November, Tuesday in the Digital Heritage Week, the network meeting took place where heritage and research came together: where do we see shared interests, principles and target groups? Where can the networks reinforce each other? Do we see opportunities to make connections between heritage and science?
On this page you will find the slides with the presentations.
Being part of the Digital Heritage Network means working according to certain principles and a shift from "institutional thinking" to "network thinking". A growing number of organisations from the heritage sector support this approach and believe that we can only get the most out of digital heritage if we work together on this. They therefore endorse the manifesto [pdf] of the Digital Heritage Network. During the combined networking day in the Week of the Digital Heritage, the LCRDM also signed the manifesto.
"Together with all other organisations in the network we provide the digital memory of the Netherlands; a memory that we can contribute to and continue to use together."
(Translated from the 'Manifest Netwerk Digitaal Erfgoed')
Use cases Heritage
Three use cases about how data and collections combined provide added value for heritage and science. The heritage sector uses three perspectives: Visible, Usable and Sustainable.

Digitisation affects all sectors of society. Not only in the heritage sector, but also in science. Libraries, archives and museums are working on making their (digital) collections visible, usable and sustainable. New is that the NDE digital heritage coaches help heritage institutions with this.
Within the LCRDM, research assistants (or if you want: data stewards) work together to help researchers at universities, colleges and other research institutions to handle their data in the best possible way according to the FAIR principles: findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.
Use cases Science
Three use cases about how data and collections combined provide added value for heritage and science. The FAIR perspective is on the rise in dealing with scientific data: Findable, Accessible, Interoperabel, Reusable.
