Feedback form is now closed.
In this session, we aim to explore from different perspectives some of the challenges for digitization practices and policies in Latin America, and explore if there are some commonalities with other countries from the Global South. How can we design strategies, policies and practices that allow us to bring cultural heritage into the digital realm with open access policies?

I'm passionate about opening cultural heritage, bookscanning, fostering access and public domain tools. I like to help people and communities to put forward digitization projects and to help them understand how copyright impacts on their daily work.
