  8. 8. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Public_Opinion_--_April_22,_1874_(4359955260).jpg The following are merely my opinions. I ENCOURAGE suggestions and additions
  9. 9. Background: Why? • Often a start local community external collaborations. Pride, legitimacy, focus. • “We’re doing the same thing, for the same reason, for the same people, often in the same medium, in a different way. Let’s do it together.” Digital visitors are still visitors. The rights to access culture is not only for those who can access in-person. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:GLAM_lightpainting.jpg
  10. 10. What we do here MATTERS. NO other web community calls itself a movement. Knowledge for Everyone – a Petition. Wikimedia Foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j-ktiYTTds
  11. 11. Create a rotating position of "Wikimedian in residence" (like artist/writer in residence) to allow tertiary students to gain experience in the professional sector and to have their Wikipedia efforts recognised. -- https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM-WIKI_Recommendations
  12. 12. Which led to… https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:British_Museum_Great_Court,_London,_UK_-_Diliff.jpg
  13. 13. All studious and curious persons - 1759 Free access to the sum of human knowledge - 2001 Internet, wiki, encyclopedia (…both on January 15!)

  27. 27. Direct financial value for the GLAM 1. If experts ensure that the answers to common questions are answered on Wikipedia, it will save staff time. 2. “…Another reason the museums chose to no longer charge for the digital images was the fact that this service had not been making a substantial profit up until that point. The money gained from the image sales did not cover the costs of the staff handling the requests.” http://pro.europeana.eu/files/Europeana_Professional/Publications/Making%20Impact%20on% 20a%20Small%20Budget%20-%20LSH%20Case%20Study.pdf
  28. 28. GLAM-WIKI CURRENT TRENDS GLAM has matured in Western Europe/North America to the extent that institutions themselves are increasing taking direct ownership.
  29. 29. e.g. UNESCO • MediaBank content release ‘Biosphere’ project: data, images, articles • Own texts/publications • Policy emphasis on ‘open’ • Memory of the World Time – Every document is a creature of its time Place – The place of its creation is a key attribute of its importance People – The social and cultural context of its creation Subject/Theme – The subject matter may represent particular historical or intellectual developments Form/Style – The item may…be a key exemplar of a type of presentation, custom or medium Social/Community significance – The document must have an emotional hold on people who are alive today
  30. 30. “ The vision of the Memory of the World Programme is that the world's documentary heritage belongs to all, should be fully preserved and protected for all and, with due recognition of cultural mores and practicalities, should be permanently accessible to all without hindrance. ” ~~~ “ Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. ”
  31. 31. Definitional changes zoos botanical gardens sports medicine higher education Our “pitch” has changed. Wikipedia  Commons  Wikidata broadcasters Corporate archives What about Wikisource? Wiktionary? ethnographic documentation projects Content liberation  Cultural partnerships
  32. 32. Growth • GLAMWiki Canberra (2009), London & Paris (2010), London (2013), The Hague (2015), Tel Aviv (2018). • GLAMcamp New York & Amsterdam (2011) • GLAMwiki Coordinators meeting Paris (2015, 2017) • Increased presence at Wikimania & regional conference. • WMF now has a culture team!
  33. 33. Metrics have matured • Global metrics  Metrics Library • 3 standard + 2 user-defined grant metrics – “# participants, # newly registered, #pages created/improved • Determine the goal, measure against THAT – The best grant applications have alignment between: strategy, activity, goal, measurement. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Redesigning_Global_Metric s_%26_its_support/Outcome
  34. 34. Mass upload • ComeOn • Pattypan • GLAMWikiToolset https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Upload_tools
  35. 35. Libraries • WikiCite – Structured citation data! • The Wikipedia Library – Now with support from IFLA • 1Lib1Ref (‘citation hunt’; hashtags) • Catalonia Library Network • Reference libraries
  36. 36. Tours -> Content • “behind the scenes” → Carpathian project • Transcribing; Scanning (e.g. Argentina) • OSM… https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%22A_Goral_Wedding%22_at_Dom_Ludowy_Theat -_bride_and_groom_dancing.jpg
