I’d like to look at ways that GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) can work more closely with Wikipedia. Of course, it’s not just GLAMs but any organisation with some collection of “knowledge” (so that might include universities, local history societies, or just any organisation that has knowledge they’d like to share with the world).
The benefits of working together are:
* for Wikipedia, better quality information
* for GLAMs, the general public is more likely to find information in a Wikipedia article (as they are in the top of the search engine results) so having GLAM content linked from the Wikipedia article can bring the reader to authoritiative content on the GLAM website for a deeper understanding than can be provided on Wikipedia
Let’s work together to give people a better “knowledge experience”.
