In May 2011, Yale announced a groundbreaking new policy on open access to digital representations of works in the public domain. Yale’s policy represents a departure from preceding efforts in that no license is required for, nor any limitations imposed upon, the use of digital images of works in the public domain. This panel will examine how Yale arrived at the current policy, including the institutional climate, the collaboration between collections across the University - from museum to library and archive collections - that gave rise to the policy, as well as the boons and challenges of implementing the policy since its inception.
