  • I'm told that GLAM is not a term in common use. It stands for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. The chart shows the state of British Museum articles in June 2010.There were 148 articles that ranged from “stubs” which may just say “The British Museum is in London” up to a “Good Article” which is an article that has grown to have good coverage of a subject and no major omissions. The highest quality article is called a Featured Article. More on them later.How to Get Help!The GLAM/Derby collaboration stems from common purpose to make information available for free.
  • n January 2010 Neil MacGregor revealed the results of four years of planning and his and the British Museum's collaboration with the BBC as he spoke for 15 minutes each weekday on the objects that define us as humans."[2] At about the time these were being broadcast in January 2010, the British Museum was being approached by Mike Peel and Liam Wyatt to investigate how Wikimedia UK could co-operate with the British Museum.Interesting there are images of Stanley and his child assistant Kalulu in the National Portrait Gallery but the copyright position is not made as clear. The Swimming Reindeer from Montastrucrock shelter came originally from France and the article written about specially by the GLAM/BM project achieved over 30,000 views on one day.

One is information going in from Wikipedia...
