Digital heritage tools for the common good

This session from Europeana 2021 explores how cultural heritage institutions can assess the public value of the tools they use.

About

Most tools used for digitising, storing and presenting digital heritage are produced by a limited number of commercial companies. This limits the possibility for reuse, adaptation and cooperation between heritage institutions, and can see public means, funding and grants go towards commercial partners, rather than towards the common good. 

This presentation explores alternatives to these tools which are more open, and builds upon the FLOSS (Free, Libre, Open Source Software) inventory created by Europeana. It explores the PublicSpaces Digital Powerwash and how cultural heritage institutions can assess the public value of the tools they use.
