Abstract (up to 100 words)

In this short session, I would like to present the ways in which we maintained the activities of the GLAM program at a time when all GLAM institutions were closed. We had to find new ways to collaborate, new ways to maintain activities and motivate editors to participate, but also ways to productively use the time created by canceling and postponing numerous previously planned activities. I would also like to present the way we have turned in our favor increased awareness of representatives of cultural institutions about the importance of digitalization and the online world.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

This session will help attendees to create new activities to accomplish the mission of free knowledge during the COVID-19 pandemic based on our model of work.

Do you plan to pre-record a video with a presentation?
