Measures for Evaluation
A list of useful GLAM tools
Glamorous: Calculates how many images from a certain category are being used on wiki projects.
baGLAMa: Provides view counts for pages using Commons images in GLAM-related category trees. Pages views demonstrate a concrete benefit to a GLAM institution - exposure of their collections.
Wikipedia article traffic statistics: Provides view counts for individual Wikipedia pages. Logic Model: A visual representation of how a GLAM program works. A Logic Model includes what you put into your program (resource inputs), what you do (program activities and participation), and what you plan to achieve (program outputs and resulting outcomes).
