GLAM
See the outreach-wiki homepage for all GLAM-Wikimedia collaboration activites:

GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. GLAM provide the bedrock for our verifiable information. The original books and manuscripts provide us with the citations that we require. Our illustrations should include information on the location of the original material. When you can see the original, when you know its annotations, an illustration truthfully shows what was originally there.

When we make use of the original material we get from our partnering GLAM, we may make changes to the material. This is one of the freedoms that we insist on. However by retaining the original material as well and by referring to it and from it always to the GLAM we provide the provenance needed for our illustrations. When we share material with a GLAM, the annotations are typically quite technical. Some of the material have their own stories. At this time we do not really have a place for them.

See the newsletter This Month in GLAM (about the newsletter/archives/newsroom) for information on current GLAM events and projects.
