Combining two perspectives:
Creative Commons at the Library: What Potential and How To Realise It
How can the Commons Stay Relevant: A Closer Look at the Engagement Strategies Coming from the European Museum

While we, activists and advocates of openness, define the idea of the commons as 'more equal access to culture, heritage and education', institutions and users may see their benefits elsewhere. During the session we will explore different ways in which the commons can serve as a means to GLAMs and their audiences' ends. We will analyse different institutional strategies and user behaviours through carefully chosen examples from the diverse institutions we have worked with: the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK), Rijksmuseum, Polish National Museum and many others. The idea behind the session is to shift the conversation from the abstract ideas and values to the actual institutional strategies and user behaviours.
