The UCLA Library has been working to create Open Access collections to international content through post-custodial partnerships for the past decade. We believe this approach to be a model for research libraries as it centers community grantees and collaborators and recognizes communities as owners of their heritage. Our mission is to expand access to primary sources while empowering communities to define what is most meaningful and important about their collections. This presentation draws together ethical, legal, cultural, and technological concerns to address the limitations and possibilities that inform approaches to openness.
