This questionnaire takes place in the framework of the EU H2020 ERA Chair on Digital Cultural Heritage MNEMOSYNE, coordinated by the Digital Heritage Research Lab, at the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT). The project is centred on holistic documentation of the Digital Cultural Heritage (DCH) lifecycle, in support of existing and potential user needs. The research areas covered within the project are the following:
Digital Cultural Heritage data acquisition;
- DCH data processing;
- DCH data modelling;
- DCH knowledge management (interpretation);
- DCH preservation;
- DHC use and Re-use.
This survey will inform the research of the last group. It needs a minimum of 15 minutes to be completed and is directed to researchers, professionals, students, as well as casual users of digital cultural heritage. The aim is to record and understand current practices regarding the use and reuse of DCH data from online sources such as Europeana, focusing particularly on specific formats: 3D on the one hand and text-audio-image-video, on the other. The trends emerging in the area during the current pandemic, as well as the challenges in fostering data use and reuse are inquired, in order to help us define user needs. The questionnaire is going to run in the time span March 8th – April 12nd.
During this survey, no personal information about you and your role within your employing institution will be asked (unless you are willing to be contacted further). Data that is collected in this research will be stored in complete anonymity on a secure server. By filling in the questionnaire, you consent to participate in this study, allowing the use of your answers for the purpose of scientific research.
Looking forward to your contribution.
