Hi all

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone who had  active open access image policies had any data they could share to aid our analysis of the first year of Te Papa's download project, for a Museums and the Web Asia paper and presentation. I received a few replies with some helpful data, and lots of requests to share our findings, so that's what I'm doing today.

I didn't get some of the data in time to inform my formal paper, but Cherie Chen from the Getty gave me some really useful info on the Getty statistics (quite a different scale from Te Papa) and other insights. Thanks Cherie!

The formal paper is here. It's a long read (8000 words) but I hope there's some useful info in there. http://bit.ly/TPopenaccess (there are a few formatting issues, sorry).

I did receive some really useful data from Rob Lancefield, Davison Art Center at Wesleyan University, and Martin Fell , York Museums Trust, in time to include in my presentation, so again, thanks Martin and Rob!

The presentation slides are here http://bit.ly/TPopenaccessSlides. It was only a 30 minute slot, so it's obviously a much abbreviated version of the paper. (I think the video will appear via MWA at some stage).

If you have any questions feel free to yell out.
