Only a few cultural institutions in Portugal have open policies granting users the rights to access, share and reuse images of their collections. They may already have part of their collections digitized and accessible online, nonetheless they have in place restrictive policies regarding the reproduction and reuse of images of the objects in their collections, including of those works that are in the public domain and of those works whose copyright belongs to the institution. In this session, we will share best practices and examples of open policies in place in Portuguese institutions, and discuss how and why specific Portuguese institutions have adopted these policies. We will try to understand the obstacles faced by Portuguese institutions when trying to fully implement open access policies; we will discuss if open access is desirable to institutions across the country; and we will think about the strategies that need to be in place in order to see a wider adoption of open practices by cultural heritage institutions in Portugal.
