ARROW: Accessible Registries of Rights Information and Orphan Works towards Europeana

ARROW

ARROW stands for Accessible Registries of Rights Information and Orphan Works towards Europeana. The project aims at providing interested stakeholders with the information required to clarify the rights status of orphan and out-of-print works, so they can be cleared for digitisation and made available to the public. It is a public-private partnership involving in a single initiative representatives of all stakeholders in the book value chain, who are contributing to the project in order to establish systems for the exchange of rights data, the creation of a registry of orphan works and out-of-print works as well as a network of rights clearance mechanisms to underpin the digital library initiative.

The resulting rights information infrastructure will facilitate the search for rightholders and the identification of public domain works, orphan works, out-of-print works and other copyrighted works, thus contributing to the release of in-copyright works for digitisation. Although inevitably the system will be based on specific use-cases, it will envisage from the beginning a full European perspective.
