  5. 5. ▶ Measure the state of advancement of OpenGLAM in the participating countries ▶ Inform the GLAM community about the latest developments in the area of OpenGLAM ▶ Identify potential partners for open data and/or crowdsourcing projects ▶ Use the study report as a communication instrument to promote OpenGLAM ▶ Use the study report as an instrument for lobbying activities in favour of OpenGLAM and the advancement of free knowledge ▶ Provide international comparisons: • Allowing each country to see where it stands compared to other countries. • Provide the international OpenGLAM community with a tool that helps it better understand the particularities of each country What do we want to achieve?

Mostly our own networks Implementing the OpenGLAM Survey in the Netherlands
