Not necessarily book related, I know, but it relates to art–the other love of my life and was covered recently in my Museum Informatics class at Drexel. The article brings up some key points on why or why not museums should provide open access to the public. Personally I think it’s a great idea what the Rijksmuseum is doing as it can provide access to high quality images for those that are unable to travel there to see the real thing. If more museums followed suit it could potentially lower the cost of Art History textbooks as well. If these texts were less pricey, and more students could have access to images I think the museum world and art would be more of an option in schools instead of an extra for white collar kids.
