2013 Activity Plan/GLAM Conference

From Wikimedia UK
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Following on from the success of the 2010 GLAM Conference run in the UK WMUK is keen to host another major international event, this time in cooperation with the British Library. This budget will allow for venue costs, supporting the travel of speakers, the attendance of delegates from the international volunteer community and extra staffing to arrange and organise the event.

Our GLAM work has developed and matured considerably since the last conference and been picked up internationally. This conference will enable the sharing of good practice and the development of new ideas.

The conference was originally scheduled for Autumn 2012 but capacity did not allow it to happen. It was instead replaced by a GLAMcamp in September 2012.
