New week, new episode of Open Culture VOICES! VOICES is a vlog series of short interviews with open GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) experts from around the world. The Open Culture Program at Creative Commons aims to promote better sharing of cultural heritage in GLAMs collections. With Open Culture VOICES, we’re thrilled to bring you various perspectives from dozens of experts speaking in many different languages on what it’s like to open up heritage content online. In this episode, we are joined by Larissa Borck, Digital Curator at the Sörmlands Museum. As a trained cultural anthropologist with a strong network in the European digital cultural heritage sector, Larissa is passionate about opening up GLAM institutions by digital means. With a background in research about digitization of cultural heritage and management of museums, Larrissa connects both academic and practice fields.
Larissa responds to the following questions:
- What are the main benefits of open GLAM?
- What are the barriers?
- Could you share something someone else told you that opened up your eyes and mind about open GLAM?
- Do you have a personal message to those hesitating to open up collections?
Episodes will be released twice a week until June 2022. Missed episode six of our Open Culture VOICES series? Catch up here >>
