MCN 2013 - After you've opened Pandora's Box

Building on some of the goals established at the U.S. OpenGLAM launch in April, this panel will highlight and collect some of the work done by museums that have already taken the first step in incorporating open access principles into their work. Although many institutions have already made interesting strides, and even written good case studies, this panel will bring together people who have launched projects, generated results from opening up their museum content, and now--with at least one project under their belts--can both synthesize what they learned and share their vision.

Since openness is as much a change of mindset as it is a change of workflow, the presenters will discuss how they did the kinds of coalition-building, convincing, and strategic thinking necessary to move their museums to a new outlook on how we relate to the digital cultural data we produce. This deck is one of the presentations from a panel. Presenter's were also Heidi Quicksilver (@MissHQ), Edward Rodley (@erodley), and Merete Sanderhoff (@MSanderhoff).

  • Thank you Ed, Hello everyone. My name is Ryan Dodge and I’m the Social Media Coordinator at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. I have a great job because I get to do a lot of experimenting and one of the areas I have been experimenting with has been in Wikipedia. Keeping with the theme of our presentation I’m going to touch on what life was like before we started this experiment, what it was like during and what it is like after.
