The e-depot for Dutch archaeology is accommodated at DANS, the national digital research data archive for the Netherlands. A wealth of digital archaeological excavation data such as maps, field drawings, photographs, tables and publications is accessible via EASY, DANS’ online archiving (deposit, preservation and reuse) service. DANS operates according to the OAIS model for digital archives and holds the Data Seal of Approval, the internationally recognized quality mark for trusted digital repositories.
Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS)[Organisation]
Metadata (the content of all fields under the Description tab in every dataset in EASY, the online archiving system of DANS) is free for use and open access. However the data itself has conditions for use and license agreements. Depositors own the data, even if a dataset is open access, the data can only be used for personal use.
