Join us via Zoom for the Museum Studies Program’s third annual Virtual Panel Discussion considering access and accessibility concerns in museum practice. With museum, library, and cultural heritage panelists from the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN), Delft University of Technology, and the Smithsonian Institution, this session will explore the challenges and opportunities of 'Open Access' initiatives and 'Access to Heritage' programs. Topics to be presented and discussed include the task of upgrading Nomenclature for Museum Cataloguing to provide access to terminology from multiple languages and regions; the creation of new, community-engaged research and educational opportunities using online collections; and the championing of digitized public domain heritage as a key tool for museums aiming to fulfill their societal missions. This panel discussion will be presented online via Zoom and will feature real time captioning.
