"Digital transitions in the Cultural Heritage Sector"
Understanding the digital future of Cultural Heritage and Research
Re-use of cultural content
Cultural heritage institutions are certainly guardians of vast collections of cultural content whose re-use could certainly generate benefits for the society. For this reason, we are interested in getting to know from your side whether you are actually allowing the re-use of your collections or whether you would be willing to do so and for which purposes. Are you willing to offer the re-use of the works in your collections for non-commercial purposes such as educational or research purposes or also for commercial purposes? We are aware that there may be legal and other barriers that may prevent the re-use of the collections. If so, we would like to hear from you which are the main barriers that you find in your daily activities.

Conversation with Kris Petrasova
A question from the audience to Ryan Kin's presentation: how do you find out about the works that are reused and remixed by the public, are people encouraged to come back with input on the content they used or you are doing a pro-active research in this respect? Also, are you considering curating the reused content in an exhibition, for example? Thank you for a very interesting presentation!
our social media team tracks the #SmithsonianOpenAccess hashtag, people also eagerly share their works on our email@example.com email, there are good analytics we can gather from API as well - including a form asking how a user plans to utilize the API when they sign up for a key
We highlight remixed content from time to time, reposting on social media or our blog: (https://www.si.edu/openaccess/updates/year-smithsonian-remixes)
I love the idea of an exhibition & perhaps we can find more creative ways to place a spotlight on reuse. Another example we love is the Met's design challenge: (https://www.metmuseum.org/150/contest)
Another question to @ryancanhelpyou but also to @saschel and the audience. First of all, thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us, it is really impressive. Given that we are looking at potential barriers to the reuse of cultural content, I heard that Ryan explained that some 'culturally sensitive' content is out of your Open Access policies. I imagine that this is liked to works from Traditional cultural expressions and folklore from certain communities. Could you explain a bit more on that? how do you decide on which works are out of OA? do other institutions have similar experiences? this is pretty much into our radar for research and we would like to know more!
We believe that reuse of cultural content can be guaranteed from unauthorized sharing and/of fraud, with using a blockchain subsystem which allows tracking of any single transaction (i.e. download, usage, sharing, etc...) that happens to any digital item
The BFI is not (yet) in the position to offer films openly for reuse (under CC) but we are a partner for the Archives For Education scheme that provides access and licenses for UK and Irish educational organisations, film clubs, to reuse archive film https://www.archivesforeducation.com/ - discussion around copyright and creative reuse is an important part of this scheme and to try and help explain what options are available.
