  113. 113. Users need information and facilitation Feedback from guests at SMK Friday CC BY-SA 4.0 Olivia Skjerk Frankel
  114. 114. Many respondents did not know about the museum’s open collections. Many still feel that the museum is an old and traditional institution whose role doesn’t rhyme with open source and sharing culture. Feedback from guests at SMK Friday CC BY-SA 4.0 Olivia Skjerk Frankel
  115. 115. ”You know, sometimes art can feel a bit inaccessible. And when it is just set free like this, then people can do with it what they want. I think that’s pretty nice.” Feedback from guests at SMK Friday CC BY-SA 4.0 Olivia Skjerk Frankel
  116. 116. ”If the artworks are to be used, it must be facilitated – perhaps by the museum itself. The Internet is flooded with images, it is therefore essential that SMK takes the lead and show users how the digitised collections can be re- used for something fun, and thought- provoking.” Feedback from guests at SMK Friday CC BY-SA 4.0 Olivia Skjerk Frankel
