What We Do
The GLAM-E Lab is a joint initiative between the Centre for Science, Culture and the Law at the University of Exeter and the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU Law. It uses direct representation to develop model policies and terms for cultural institutions that are creating open access programs.
The GLAM-E Lab provides legal counsel to cultural institutions and organizations as they develop open access programs. The solutions created are then integrated into model internal policies and external terms of service that can be adopted by other institutions.
The goal of this approach is to use lessons learned from directly representing individual institutions to create self-serve model policies that work “off the shelf” for as many institutions as possible. We supplement these model policies with additional guides and resources to address common challenges.
If your institution has challenges that are not fully addressed by our existing policies, we would love to hear from you. In most cases, the GLAM-E Lab works with partners free of charge.
