With the new release the Orphan works database is now available in all official languages of the EU and in Icelandic. The users of the Database are now able to search, file records and perform other tasks by selecting their language of choice. The choice of languages is available on the top left hand side of the Database landing page

Furthermore, the Office has developed a tool for extracting data from the MARC standard to facilitate the data extraction and upload process. This tool will allow beneficiary organizations to extract information contained in specific data fields used in the MARC standard and upload this information into the Orphan works database. The tool will be available to registered users of the Database upon request. The request can be submitted by e-mail to the following address: observatory.orphanworks@euipo.europa.eu.
