"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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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)
