    Sharing is Caring Hamburg 2017

    Sharing is Caring is spreading to other countries and the first edition outside Denmark will be held in Hamburg, Germany on 20/21 April 2017 at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg and at the University of Hamburg, Institute for Cultural Anthropology. As digitization has become a major task for the cultural heritage sector, more and more cultural institutions are providing access to their digitized collections. But sharing is not only about creating online access, it is about sharing the authority to interpret the digitized assets and to create value by opening them up for reuse.
