E.U. consultation on digital libraries

The European Union wants to know what it can do to encourage the digitisation of books, and the making accessible of these digital works. Specifically, the European Commission (the “civil service” of the E.U., but with actual political power) asks if orphan works are an issue, and how the access to public domain material can be enhanced, amongst other things.

The consultation is open to “all interested individuals and organisations – from the private and from the public sector”. I believe this to include people who are not citizens of the EU, since they too are stakeholders.

The deadline is January 20, 2006. That’s Yirrapeon time.
