Reuse: The DLF AIG Reuse Working Group defines reuse as how often and in what ways digital library materials are utilized and repurposed. In this definition, we do know the context of the use. This definition is fluid and open to change.
Examples of reuse: turning images into gifs or memes; inclusion of digital collection materials in an external dataset (e.g. HTRC datasets or curated Internet Archive user collections); mashups of two or more songs or video; data visualizations; other transformative applications of the collections external to digital collections systems
Examples of reuse assessment: reverse image lookup information; citation metrics of data and/or digital collection materials
