GLAM Cooperation

A GLAM cooperation betweenMuseum für Hamburgische Geschichte and the Wiki Community, i.e. active authors on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and other Wikimedia projects, has been in operation since 2011.


GLAM stands for “Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums” and refers to cooperation projects between cultural institutions and the Wikimedia Community. The cooperation between Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte and the Wiki Community is Germany’s first GLAM cooperation. The aim is to make the museum‘s exhibition and collection objects accessible digitally in both text and picture form in Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. Participation of the German and international Wiki Community is a central objective of the project. Events and sub-projects are being organised to provide interested members of the community with the opportunity to participate actively.
