      Open Access Made Easy: How to Open Your Collections for Greater and Better Sharing

      Date: June 18, 2024 12:00pm - 1:00pm

      Join us for a session developed by Creative Commons to learn about the open culture movement, the benefits of sharing your collections widely, and how your institution can “go open” responsibly.

      CT Humanities is continuing their collaboration with Creative Commons to enhance the knowledge of intellectual property in the cultural heritage community in Connecticut.

      The webinar will offer an opportunity for attendees to learn about the recent intellectual property work undertaken by CT Humanities, develop knowledge and skills in copyright and open licensing, understand the mission of Creative Commons and gain visibility among a global open culture community that stands for equity, sustainability, access, and better sharing.

      We look forward to open discussion with people from around the state in an educating and engaging dialog about, open access, open culture/Open GLAM (Galleries, Archives, Library, and Museums), Creative Commons Licensing and how you can join the movement!
