  2. 2. Open GLAM OpenGLAM is an initiative run by the Open Knowledge Foundation that promotes free and open access to digital cultural heritage held by Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums
  3. 3. GLAM Galleries, libraries, archives and museums have a fundamental role in supporting the advance of humanity’s knowledge. They are the custodians of our cultural heritage and in their collections they hold the record of humankind.
  4. 4. Internet and GLAM The internet presents cultural heritage institutions with an unprecedented opportunity to engage global audiences and make their collections more discoverable and connected than ever, allowing users not only to enjoy the riches of the world’s memory institutions, but also to contribute, participate and share.
  5. 5. Open Definition When we say that digital content or data is “open” we mean that it complies with the Open Definition, which can be summed up in the statement that: “A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to give credit to the author and/or making any resulting work available under the same terms as the original work.”
  6. 6. Open GLAM Principle 1. Release digital information about the artefacts (metadata) into the public domain using an appropriate legal tool such as the Creative Commons Zero Waiver. 2. Keep digital representations of works for which copyright has expired (public domain) in the public domain by not adding new rights to them. 3. When publishing data make an explicit and robust statement of your wishes and expectations with respect to reuse and repurposing of the descriptions, the whole data collection, and subsets of the collection. 4. When publishing data use open file formats which are machine-readable. 5. Opportunities to engage audiences in novel ways on the web should be pursued.
  7. 7. Open GLAM Tools Here is a a list of open-source the tools that the Open Knowledge Foundation and its partners have produced for working with open cultural data and content. TEXTUS TEXTUS is an open-source platform for collaborating around collections of digitised texts. Allowing you read, annotate and cite using URLs. ANNOTATEIT AnnotateIt enables you to annotate anything, anywhere on the web, by signing up and installing our bookmarklet! You can annotate any webpage with the bookmarklet and add the Annotator to your own site in just two lines of code. TIMELINER Timeliner allows you to build timeline from Google Documents spreadsheets quickly and easily. It is based on Recline a JavaScript library for building data applications.
  8. 8. Open GLAM Tools CROWD CRAFTING CrowdCrafting is a crowd-sourcing platform that enables you to build apps for performing tasks that require human cognition, knowledge or intelligence such as image classification, transcription, geocoding and more! BIBSERVER BibServer is a tool for quickly and easily sharing collections of bibliographic metadata. Whilst this may seem dull in itself, just think of what this data actually is – a record of work, a map to the knowledge of humanity. By making it simple for people to use this information, we make scholarship better. PUNDIT Developed by Italian SME Net7. Pundit is a powerful semantic annotation tool. It enables users to create structured data annotating web pages. User are able to collect annotations in notebooks and share with others to create collaborative structured knowledge.
