Pierre El Khoury — Open Culture VOICES, Season 2 Episode 29

Open Culture

“For researchers GLAM’s preserve primary sources” which is of great benefit when creating knowledge and research about the present and the past. Pierre talks about how open access policies in GLAM’s make knowledge shared and more widespread instead of just for the elite few with permission from the collecting institution.

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. Pierre is the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Al Hikma University in Lebanon where he teaches on intellectual property law and  information and communications technology law.

Pierre responds to the following questions:

  1. What are the main benefits of open GLAM?
  2. What are the barriers?
  3. Could you share something someone else told you that opened up your eyes and mind about open GLAM?
  4. Do you have a personal message to those hesitating to open up collections?
