• Quick draft of rough Open GLAM vision statement & principles (need review)• Brainstorm Incentives & Barriers• Brainstorm case studies• Brainstorm next steps...
The Principles (Draft)• GLAM institutions must be enabled to fulfil their traditional function in the online environment for the sustainability of the access to digitised cultural heritage.• GLAM institutions can engage with the public as partners through participation, collaboration and interaction (abandon the top down control paradigm) and seek opportunities for public to recognising the value of access ...• Digital reproductions of works that are in the Public Domain must also belong to the Public Domain. Use of works in the public domain should not be limited by any means, either legal or technical. (Communia Recommendation #5 targets Glam institutions, no intention to have a viral effect on works incorporating PD pieces) • Digitisation projects that receive public funding must - at the minimum - ensure that all digitised content is publicly available online.
