“The key to enjoying the benefits of Open Culture is to use the tools available to us” says Rina Pantalony. In this episode we learn about the national and global networks that support open access in the GLAM sector and how education is crucial to leveraging the power of open licenses. Copyright is a tool open licensing with attribution can accelerate the spread of information and knowledge.
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. Rina Pantalony is the Dirctor of Copyright Services at Columbia University and is also on the advisory board of OCEAN, the Open Copyright Education Advisory Netowrk which advocates for open licensing around the world.
Rina 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?
