Opening digital collections : An introductory webinar series




OpenGLAM is a global movement advocating open access to cultural heritage. As cultural heritage institutions around the world digitize their collections, there are many reflections and questions about public access to digital cultural heritage.

Open GLAM Now! is a webinar series focusing on how galleries, libraries, archives and museums can open up towards their audiences with the help of digital data and media.

The aim is that visitors can use data and become active participants within the institution. In this series, both Swedish and international speakers present their work in the context of digital cultural heritage data.

Produced by Larissa Borck for the Swedish National Heritage Board
