Hi Everyone,

On the most recent Working Group call, I agreed to put up the most recent
version of the OpenGLAM principles based on some of the comments that were
received on the OpenGLAM public discussion list. I incorporated these into
OpenGLAM Principles v0.6:


There has been a renewed interest from a number of cultural institutions in
the idea of open content since the Getty release and it would be great to
use this as an opportunity to point other institutions wanting their open
content program to the principles. I therefore propose we iterate to v1.0
by the end of next week.

If people could give their remaining comments on thread that would be great.

I would also like to table 1 further principles on the basis of comments
made by Maarten and Lotte in the last round of comments:

   - Clearly document the open data, content and services you provide so
   that others can easily re-use, build and improve on what you've made made

What do people think? I'm also pondering adding in a principle concerning
open licensing of scans of in-copyright works that a GLAM has the rights
to. My gut feeling is that we're better to focus on PD works in the first

Look forward to hearing your thoughts!

All the best,


Sam Leon
