In this talk, Jennie Rose Halperin discusses the fact that cultural heritage organizations in the United States rely almost entirely on proprietary software and many refuse to believe that the systems they choose directly impact their long term success as largely grant-funded organizations.
The session explores the options for free software in the cultural heritage space and inspires participants to work with organizations to help make the transition. It also talks about the pros and cons of working with free software in the cultural heritage space and touches on many of the issues that professionals face while making the transition. The session ends with future-state imagining to dream up how we can better support new projects in free software for cultural heritage as well as invite people into already existing communities.
