'SHARING IS CARING. Openness and sharing in the cultural heritage sector
is an anthology that explores the changes and opportunities brought about by digitisation, digital media, and the internet for the cultural heritage world and – not least – our users. The anthology contains 18 articles by Danish and international experts.
Billions of people across the globe are connected by the Internet, where they have access to communicating, learning, exchanging, developing, creating, and sharing with each other. How do we as cultural institutions embrace this unique opportunity? When cultural heritage is digital, there is nothing standing in the way of sharing and reusing it. It can be sampled, remixed, embedded, it can illustrate new stories and move into new media, it can adorn books, posters, and public spaces, advance research and make ideas and creativity blossom.
The anthology spans a wide range of themes and approaches. It contains contributions from museum professionals, scholars, public sector administrators, a lawyer and a school teacher. The red line through it all is an urge to explore the new opportunities to open up and share knowledge and resources, which digitisation brings about.' - excerpts from publisher's website.
