Wikimedia Sverige is proud to be the recipient of $324,500 in support from the Swedish
Postcode Foundation for our project FindingGLAMs.
We will work in collaboration with UNESCO and the Wikimedia Foundation to achieve a
number of ambitious goals over the 15 month long project. We will work to:
Collect and include data about GLAM institutions around the world on Wikidata (e.g.
where they are located). This will be done both through a campaign and from batch uploads
Batch upload collections of media files, in collaboration with the Structured Data on
Organize networks of experts to discuss issues with disseminating different types of
material through the Wikimedia projects;
Create a white paper consisting of a number of case studies based on the work and
discussions outlined above;
Communicate about the Wikimedia movement’s work with GLAMs at conferences;
Organize a number of activities both on- and offline to use the material. This include
some work around Wikimania 2019 that will take place in Stockholm, Sweden.
We hope many of you would like to get involved in the project and work with us to connect
to GLAM partners in your countries. At this point we are looking for your help to identify
institutions that maintain lists of GLAM institutions (similar to the collection of
monuments lists for WLM) and later to identify GLAM institutions with specific types of
collections that would like to work with the Wikimedia movement.
Please contact the project manager John Andersson (john.andersson(a)wikimedia.se) if you
have any questions. If you are interested to take part, please sign up on the project
portal at Meta: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FindingGLAMs
As always, you can find the full application on our wiki (in Swedish):
 GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums.
We look forward working with you!
