Lukas Koster and Saskia Woutersen-Windhouwer (both University of Amsterdam) have published an article in the Code4Lib Journal entitled, “FAIR Principles for Library, Archive, and Museum Collections: A Proposal for Standards for Reusable Collections“:
In this article we propose a body of requirements for making LAM collections findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR), as well as a set of recommendations for assessing existing institutional situations and for implementation of the requirements. These requirements and recommendations are based on the FAIR Principles for scholarly output (FAIR data principles ) and adapted for cultural heritage collections.
The authors close with a roadmap for institutions looking to begin the process of making their collections “FAIR.”
