Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
The practice of working with partners in the GLAM sector is now well established. But we rarely work with GLAMs in the private sector. What will be the issues when we do, and how will we handle them? Can we afford not to work with the archives of a large company, for example, who have valuable educational media and historic documents, but a questionable environmental or ethical history. And if we do, how can we maximise the benefit to our projects?
What will attendees take away from this session?
Ideas for working with commercial GLAMS. Greater understanding of the likely issues and risks; and a strategy for mitigating them.
