About GLAM

GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. They are the bedrock for our verifiable information and our colleagues in sharing knowledge.

Objectives

Liam Wyatt is visiting India and we are using this opportunity to organize events / meetings across India to achieve the following:

  • Create greater awareness among wikipedians about GLAM.
  • Sharing of Liam's GLAM experiences from various countries.
  • Connect with GLAM stakeholders across cities
  • Potentially create Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of wikipedians in each of these cities.

India has a wealth of information and knowledge and the GLAM stakeholders play a key role in making some of that public domain knowledge accessible to all.
