Bern University of Applied Sciences | openglam.ch ▶ We are a loose network of OpenGLAM related projects. ▶ The OpenGLAM Working Group primarily functions as a contact platform to meet people, to keep each other up-to- date and to initiate projects. ▶ New projects or task forces can be launched in a rather informal way if there is a critical mass of people interested in promoting them - new topics can be announced through the mailing list or at coordination meetings; also, the projects and task forces are encouraged to report back to the mailing list about their progress . ▶ Coordination meetings are held twice per year. Functioning (as of summer 2014)

OpenGLAM CH – A Brief History (Cont.)
  • 7. Bern University of Applied Sciences | openglam.ch ▶ OpenGLAM is the goal (and not organization building or turf wars) (avoid the not-invented-here syndrome) ▶ There is value in diversity (in Switzerland, the Open Knowledge chapter has so far turned out to be a good host for it) ▶ Think global, act global ▶ Assume good faith and be bold (not everyone will be ready to move as fast as you) (there is a lot of sleeping potential, even in organizations where you wouldn’t expect it at first sight) Some advice
