GLAM stands for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums and the wider cultural sector. Over recent years, there has been increasing recognition that the Wikimedia mission overlaps with that of many GLAMs. This has translated into a steadily growing set of partnerships around the globe. In this talk, an overview of the global activities will be provided, followed by a more detailed discussion of activities for one region (Central and Eastern Europe) and one topic area (Science GLAM). -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 23:20, 12 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]
