    Dear all,

    Here’s the link to my blog for Week 3 of OCTEL 2014 which explores what openness means to me and which museums/art galleries have open access to their collections:

    Very interesting, Colin. Museums have been quite active in the sphere of virtual worlds, usually from the perspective of creating a version of their own collection for others to visit remotely (which is great, of course). However, I note that the Smithsonian has gone one step further by scanning some of its collection and making the scans available according to “fair use”. Given that they have just 1% of their collection on public display, this seems good sense to me. http://3d.si.edu/

    The Usher Gallery in Lincoln also has some very nice 3D scans at http://lincoln3dscans.co.uk/ and some are incorporated into this virtual museum http://wa692.avayalive.com/ (some patience required to load).  I’ve no idea about the IP of the other content in the museum.
