Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums are cultural institutions that hold an abundance of knowledge resources to share. GLAM-WIKI is a Wikimedia initiative to produce open-access, freely-reusable content for the public in collaboration with GLAM institutions. A partnership with Wikimedia is a low-cost, high-impact way for them to disseminate their resources to a global audience.
GLAMs can contribute to this initiative through Wikipedia, Wikimedia commons, and Wikisource. Global examples show that working with Wikimedia extend the reach of GLAMs to potential global audience, and increase foot falls due to greater awareness of the institution's collections and knowledge. Wikimedia Chapter will share how this is done, and how this initiative has benefited the global institutions.
Sharing of artifacts for global audience over the internet requires appropriate legal tools related to copyright. Creative Commons develops and supports such tools. Wikimedia projects are one of the largest users of Creative Commons licenses.
Speakers from Creative Commons will present an overview about their organization and the tools. They will describe how these tools relate to Wikimedia and GLAM. They will also suggest how the institutions can choose the appropriate tool to selectively retain their rights while releasing some of it for free public use.
Creative Commons licensing also works for many other applications such as music, video, writing, and many other creative works. Open Education Resources and Public Data are other applications. Though the event will focus on GLAM, attendees can discuss other subjects with the speakers at the end of Q&A.
