This workshop is intended to discuss issues for sharing scholarly data in the cultural domains across communities and over time. There are scholarly information resources in the cultural domains. The values of those resources are recognized but there are concerns about those resources; some of the major concerns are the longevity of the resources, sharing of the resources across communities, and digital curation of cultural heritage in the developing regions. This workshop is planned to collect and share information about research projects and practical projects and discuss issues to promote collaboration for sharing cultural information resources across communities and over time.

This workshop is planned based on two projects, RsDA (Research small/sustainable/scholarly Data in Asia), hosted by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) at Kyoto University, Japan, and NetDiploma / LeaPS, hosted by Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Northumbria University, UK. RsDA started in 2017 as a collaborative activity among several researchers and librarians in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, and some other countries to discuss the longevity of digital assets developed by researchers mainly in the humanities. NetDiploma and LeaPS are funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), UK, aiming to understand the challenges faced across the African continent for access to digital information and design a blueprint to ensure people have access to information for Sustainable Development Goals as their larger target.

This workshop will include presentations by invited and accepted speakers following two opening talks by the leaders of the two projects at Kyoto University and Northumbria University. This workshop is calling for proposals of presentations on topics related to sharing, development, maintenance, use, and preservation of digital cultural assets. Some keywords: longevity of databases, digital preservation, digital curation and archiving, digital humanities, research open data in the humanities, linked open data for cultural information resources, etc.
