US OpenGLAM Launch is an invite open event being which brings together United States based cultural professionals to learn about OpenGLAM principles to become better advocates for the OpenGLAM initiative, which includes programs like GLAM-Wiki. This small workshop, which includes approximately 25 participants, is the first of many events in the United States which will engage professionals and community members alike.
