Abstract

This chapter is approached from a community of practice perspective and explores accessibility projects for audiences with visual impairments undertaken by the GLAM sector, both online and onsite. Although the core of this activity is primarily approached through contract law and institutional policymaking, rather than IP law, an institution likely enjoys IP in the new works generated for audiences with visual impairments during reproduction. This chapter considers how new works might be subject to the same legal exceptions that apply to the in-copyright works in heritage collections, as well as the meaning of access in an age of inclusivity and equity.

Keywords: open access, open GLAM, copyright, public domain, disability rights, human rights
