In recent years, many cultural institutions have struggled to figure out how to make their collection content more broadly accessible in light of intellectual property constraints, technological challenges, and other institutional resistances. This workshop will be twofold providing both theory and hands-on skills to help guide you through the process and address a number of common questions: How do you determine whether you have sufficient rights to make content more openly accessible? How do you secure permissions if you do not already have them, and what type of permissions should you seek? Can you rely on fair use, and if so, when do you invoke its use? How do you navigate making content more broadly accessible in the face of institutional resistance? What are the best avenues for your institution to distribute your collection content externally? Each presenter has handled these issues at their own institution and will discuss these topics in light of their own experiences during the panel session.
