Welcome to episode 15 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, Rebecca Giblin, an ARC Future Fellow and Professor at Melbourne Law School, and the Director of the Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia. Her work sits at the intersection of law and culture, focusing on creators’ rights, access to knowledge and culture, technology regulation and copyright.
Rebecca 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 14 of our Open Culture VOICES series? Catch up here >>
