"Helping Wikipedians, curators and archivists to collaborate to open up access to knowledge is very rewarding."

"Be bold! You can work with a GLAM - just press their door bell!"

"GLAM partnerships allow Wikipedians to access the wealth of knowledge collected by our cultural institutions and at the same time allow the GLAMs to share their knowledge with a far broader audience."

"There are four or five GLAMs within walking distance of my house... Why aren't they on Wikipedia, too?"

GLAM community discussing GLAM outreach in the UK

GLAMcamp London is a GLAM set of workshops and presentations for Wikimedians active in outreach for UK cultural institutions. The aim is to build on the network of GLAM related e-volunteers. Attendees of this meeting built on the success of GLAMcamp London in 2011. We were discussing the structure of GLAM-WIKI 2012.
