Sarah Powell

Sarah Powell is currently the Rights Specialist at Auckland War Memorial Museum where the philosophy towards access and reuse of their digitised collections is “open by default, closed by exception.” Her role consists of managing rights and permissions for digital images of collection and providing clear and consistent statements for online visitors. She has also been involved with implementing a cultural permissions statement which is assigned to images of Māori and Pacific objects, ensuring ethical and cultural considerations are taken into account alongside legal considerations. She has recently completed a Masters in Museum and Heritage Studies from Victoria University of Wellington where she focused on the adoption of the Open GLAM philosophy within New Zealand cultural heritage institutions.
