Culture Hack: Libraries & Museums Open for Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Around the world, libraries, archives and museums are opening their doors to hackers, makers, enthusiasts and creatives of all kinds. By publishing Open Data, cultural heritage institutions are finding new ways to open access to their collections for remix and reuse, and promote new uses and interpretations of the works they hold. These international panelists will explore the many ways in which cultural heritage institutions are sharing content, what people are doing with this content, as well as exploring some of the thornier issues of open access across borders and institutions.
