  15. 15. Unexpected
  16. 16. Things to note • All of these are about improving the content - better articles, more articles, translations. • All of these focus on personal relationships - this makes it more sustainable, thoroughgoing. • All of these are about leveraging the communities - new contributors, existing contributors, experts. • None of these focus on the resident’s own work. • None of these are content donation projects.
  17. 17. NOT about “content liberation”
  18. 18. Wikimedian focus on GLAM Multimedia But of course, I’m working on this behind the scenes. A lot.
  19. 19. How many GLAMs have a volunteer team? ...a e-volunteer team?
  20. 20. Bringing Wikipedia in-house to find ways of building a proactive relationship, of mutual benefit, without undermining the principles of either.
  21. 21. We’re doing the same thing, for the same reason, for the same people, in the same medium. Let’s do it together.
  22. 22. However, this was a proof of concept. I do not think it is feasible for people to volunteer full time like I did. So - how to make it scale? I believe the next step is for Chapters to provide a professional contact person to manage relationships and for that person to identify and place individual Wikimedians with GLAMs to suit their respective needs.
