Description

From abstract: "Few of us dispute the importance of providing access to our cultural heritage. Yet we still seem years away from fulfilling the promises of access: opening long-dormant archives, enriching culture and begetting creativity, and turning cultural consumers into producers. What can we do, and what are we now doing, to resolve obstacles to access, whether rooted in financial, legal or quality concerns? Focusing on how we might navigate these obstacles and turn them into opportunities, our panelists will discuss what they have done to provide access to cultural assets, how their mindsets about access have developed, and where they hope cultural access will evolve."
