Introductions and major points of interest:
 
  • Safe spaces and working conditions
dorohoward@gmail.com
  • GLAMs have a culture of comfort. - Adrianne
 
  • Institutions of the post-enlightenment: the museum, the encyclopedia, the free press. Hugely disrupted by digital media; these institutions are fragmented and don't talk with each other. GLAM-Wiki can fix that. - Andrew Lih
 
Consortium's NEW mission & goals
The GLAM-Wiki US Consortium brings together knowledge organizations, Wikimedia chapters, and individuals to explore using Wikimedia platforms for sharing knowledge. This network discusses ideas, shares resources, collaborates on projects, establishes best practices, and builds expertise, as communities united by a common interest in open knowledge and culture.
