Completely open Collections on Europeana (spreadsheet)
A Google spreadsheet listing collections from Europena.
The title isn’t completely accurate since it also lists collections that are not completely open.
I count ninety-eight (98) collections that are completely open, another two hundred and thirty-three (233) that use a Creative Commons license and four hundred and seven (407) that aren’t completely open or use a Creative Commons license.
You will need to check the individual entries to be sure of the licensing rights. I tried MusicMasters, which is listed as closed, to find that one (1) image could be used with attribution and two hundred and forty-seven (247) only with permission.
Europena is a remarkable site that is marred by a pop-up that takes you to FaceBook or to exhibits. For whatever reason, it is a “feature” of this pop-up that it cannot be closed. At least on Firefox and Chrome.
The spreadsheet should be useful as a quick reference for potentially open materials at Europeana.
I first saw this in a tweet by Amanda French.
