Michael has discovered a lead-by-example way of working in Open GLAM which is that “friction and barriers that are faced are actually resolved by Open Access and Open GLAM which can be passed down to future users of creative works.” In this episode we learn more about the ways institutions conflate stewardship obligations and responsibility for control how works are used as well as how to overcome the technical and practical challenges of opening up collections.
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. Michael Weinberg is the Executive Director of the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy, NYU Law where he works to promote open access policies and copyright reform.
Michael 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?
