Google Hangout: Open Licensing: What It Is, Why Do It
Thursday, March 5
2-3 p.m. (ET)
A Google+ Hangouts Event

Interested in how you can open up your collections for the public good? In this one-hour roundtable discussion via Google+ Hangout, a panel of experts will explore the variety of ways that cultural institutions such as galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAMs) can apply open licensing to their collections, as well as how this type of licensing benefits both institutions and their audiences.

The conversation will also introduce attendees to open licensing models and will articulate the potential benefits and challenges for implementing open licensing at institutions of all sizes. Digital strategist Michael Edson of the Smithsonian Institution and the Open Knowledge Foundation will moderate the discussion.
