Dear all,

We are happy to now widely share and announce our renewed Open Collections
page on the OpenGLAM blog at

Our OpenGLAM Open Collections page, we provide a global and curated
overview of open cultural content online. Over the last months, we
have completed a restyle of the page: it is now delivered through the
wonderful Omeka software platform. This means you easily search, locate
collections on a map, comment on or tag collections. Searching by tag
allows you to quickly look for material that fits your purpose. You can
either visit the page through the OpenGLAM site at
http://openglam.org/open-collections/, or directly through

When we call these collections open, we mean they are licensed in a way
that is compliant with the Open Definition. Popular ones for data include
CC-0 and for content CC-BY or CC-BY-SA are often used. A part of the
collections fully meet our OpenGLAM principles, for example by keeping
works for which copyright has expired in the public domain by not adding
new rights to them. These collections have been awarded the OpenGLAM Badge
of Approval (see http://open-collections.okfn.org/exhibits/show/open/badge).

Currently we have 53 open collections and 9 lists of open collections in
our database. We’re quite sure that there is a lot more open collections
out there, and we would love to add them with your help. If you know of an
open collection that should be in here, you can sign up for our Omeka
platform through this link
<http://open-collections.okfn.org/guest-user/user/register>, and then fill
in the form on the Contribute page for your open collection to be added.
Many thanks for your help!

Best regards,

Lieke Ploeger.
