GLAM plan for 2013-14

This is a brief outline for the GLAMplan for April 2013 to March 2014.

  • GLAM base: Connecting with your local GLAM community. Not necessarily to do a GLAM project (although that would be a desirable outcome) but also to help them understand Wikipedia and its sister projects. Also engage with students who have a background in Arts, Design and Architecture. Engage with them as a means to improve articles and to enable a dialogue with GLAM institutions.
  • WiRs: We need long term engagement with GLAM institutions to affect change. Wikipedians-in-Residence is one model that enables community to interact with the GLAM institutions in a meaningful way. Adaptation to the Indian context would be required. It needs continuous engagement and constant dialogue.
  • Wikipedians visit GLAMs: Many Indians don't visit our GLAM institutions. In order to better appreciate the programme, I hope Wikipedians organise meetups and visit GLAM institutions. This is the first point of contact for many. If you already are a regular GLAM visitor do volunteer to take up more Wikipedians around India's GLAM institutions.
