The work derives from Work Package (WP) 5 of the reCreating Europe project. This focuses specifically on cultural heritage institutions, such as galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM). The project conducted a comparative and cross-national landscape analysis, aiming to map the governance and implementation processes for Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) in GLAM, and a report on the existing copyright legal framework addressing Libraries and Archives (LA) in the EU. Building on these efforts, this deliverable intends to use the work conducted in this branch of the reCreating Europe project to formulate a valuable resource for LA professionals in need of information to carry out their work in an informed manner, in accordance with best practice.
