Charles shares that “open access [in cultural heritage] allows institutions to shine a light on lesser known works” that would otherwise go unnoticed. In this episode we get to learn about how a major French cultural institution creates value by making incredibly detailed data of collections available to the public online.
Open Culture VOICES is a series of short videos that highlight the benefits and barriers of open culture as well as inspiration and advice on the subject of opening up cultural heritage. Charles is the Digital and Open Data Project Manager at Mucem where he works to increase the usability and engagement of the museums collection.
Charles 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?
