Open Access Week: Cultural Heritage, Technology, and Open Access


Location: Snite Museum of Art (Zoom)

Join us for an event celebrating Open Access Week and the impact that free, immediate, online access to our heritage and cultural objects; the scholarly research surrounding them; and the right to use and re-use images of cultural objects and art can have.

For this program, we have gathered experts from the United States, Denmark, and Italy for a panel discussion that will explore the legal issues that color institutions' decisions to make their collections open access and the institutional attitudes towards these policies and decisions. The interdisciplinary discussion aims to support a transnational discussion on this important topic. Our esteemed panelists include Victoria Perdomo, Registrar at Notre Dame's Snite Museum of Art; Michael Weinberg, Executive Director of the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy at the NYU School of Law and author of the GLAM3D manual; Merete Sanderhoff, Curator and Senior Adviser at SMK in Copenhagen; and Christian Greco, Director of the Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy

This program is sponsored by the Program on Intellectual Property and Technology Law at the University of Notre Dame Law School with support from Hesburgh Libraries and the Snite Museum of Art.
