Cultural Heritage in a Digital EuropeCultural heritage institutions play a central role in guaranteeing access to culture to the public, also in the digital world. However, too often, libraries, museums and archives face technical and contractual barriers to the digitalization, access, use and reuse of works. Institutional users are among the many in the community of cultural content users calling for copyright reform.

We invite representatives of the civil society, of libraries, publishers, the European Commission and everyone interested to discuss the political and legal responses to these challenges on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 , 10–12am in Brussels.
