WikiConference North America 2023 unfortunately could not accommodate this submission in its program this year.


The State and Future of GLAM-Wiki Partnerships


Recent Changes, Community Initiatives, GLAM / Heritage / Culture, Open Data

Type of session:



As open access initiatives gain traction among cultural institutions, how well-equipped is the Wikimedia movement to fulfill the requirements of cultural and heritage institutions in their GLAM wiki endeavors?

This round table aims to assess GLAM Wiki engagements and workflows, identifying and addressing shortcomings. Led by Kelly Doyle Kim and Andrew Lih from the Smithsonian Institution, the discussion will focus on current GLAM-Wiki partnerships, their future, and the sharing of ideas, concerns, and best practices. The goal is to collaboratively outline key points for the desired direction of this essential movement area.
