Open Access Week: Cultural Heritage, Technology, and Open Access


Location: Snite Museum of Art (Zoom)


Join us for an event celebrating Open Access Week and the impact that free, immediate, online access to our heritage and cultural objects; the scholarly research surrounding them; and the right to use and re-use images of cultural objects and art can have.
