Breakthrough: towards a large-scale open access procedure in 2018 - FNG’s initiative for intensifying collaboration with Europeana in 2017 in order to develop the museum’s collections online: FNG’s Archive and Library Manager Hanna-Leena Paloposki spent two months in the autumn of 2017 on a unique residency in Europeana’s head quarters in The Hague - Europeana’s initiative for upgrading the FNG’s collections’ data in Europeana especially in terms of image quality and Europeana encouraging the FNG to share the images with a free licence The two-way process resulted in the Finnish National Gallery launching on the 15th February 2018 sharing about 12000 images of the collections’ art works with a CC0 license on both the FNG’s own collections website and Europeana. Larger jpg image files than earlier can be downloaded and used for any purpose from both sites.
  10. 10. Europeana blog by Douglas McCarthy posted on the 15th February 2018 stating the FNG’s policy: “Opening up our collections data is one way of leading our customers towards even richer museum experiences, and of course the requirements of national and EU cultural policies very strongly ponted the way to a tenacious open-data policy.”
  11. 11. Europeana’s online exhibition An Ecstasy of Beauty curated together with Europeana and FNG. The exhibition explores the travels made by Finnish artists from 1882 to 1926 and how their journeys influenced their art and uses materials shared in the Europeana by several European organisations.
  12. 12. Immediate positive reaction to the launching of the FNG’s new open access policy by the organisation’s followers in social media (facebook and Twitter). - Best coverage of the year. - New open access policy responds to our audiences’ needs and expectations.
  13. 13. Why open access? • The Finnish National Gallery’s collections belong to Finnish people and are part of our common European cultural heritage. We want to guarantee open access but also encourage participation in creating new meanings and discoveries among larger audiences than before. • Active and innovative on-line presence activates potential vistors, increses number of visits in the museums and increases interest towards art and culture. • Facilitating and supporting education and reserach. • Enabling the use of collectins’ data in creative software technologies • Social impacts: supporting democracy and positive objectives of open societies.
