and hard copy. The guidelines correspond closely with the EN 15907 structure and use associated terminology. Given this, the] Manual serves as an important extension of EN 15907 by helping professionals create cataloguing or metadata records that will meet requirements of new database implementations and/or the adoption of new metadata standards.

With Linked Data concepts becoming more mature, new ways of storing and sharing data in film archives open up. Major aggregating initiatives, such as the European Film Gateway and Europeana are also undergoing rapid technological change, and strive for more effective ways to achieve semantic interoperability in the cultural heritage sector. At the same time, many film heritage institutions encounter technical and organizational challenges in adopting Linked Data concepts. The workshop will present the latest approaches and best practices concerning these concepts, and facilitate an open discussion on Linked Data in film archives.

The workshop addresses
- individuals responsible for collection management applications in film heritage institutions,
- cataloguers and filmographers and
- information professionals from related cultural and media heritage communities.
