> Dear all,
> We are happy to now widely share and announce our renewed Open Collections
> page on the OpenGLAM blog at
> http://openglam.org/2015/06/11/openglam-open-collections.
> 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
> http://open-collections.okfn.org/.
> 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.
