Laksmi says that “open access…makes it possible to collaborate and reconstruct cultural heritage.” In this episode we learn about cultural heritage in Indonesia and how open access has made it possible for organisations to work together and build out data sets and information about historical collections across the country.
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. Laksmi is a project manager at Museum Pasifika where she has worked with Wikipedia to develop an open access and open data project for the collections.
Laksmi 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?
