Hi everyone,

i would like to share some quite important *GLAM informations* from Wikimedia France. We are working on open content projects since several months and are pleased to present a *report relative to open content* in french GLAMs and the *« Label Culture Libre »* which will be open for applications from 27 October 2022.

This*label *will be the first one in France *dedicated to cultural institutions that integrate open content and Wikimedia projects *in their digital practices. This project is part of a global initiative to raise awareness of open content, the first step of which was the publication of the open content report, produced by the Phare agency on behalf of and in partnership with Wikimedia France. Wikimedia France's open content strategy will be completed by the creation of an *observatory in 2023*.

In order to better understand the stakes of the label and the steps to apply, we propose a special webinar on November 24, 2022 to the french GLAM.

   Please, find a quick presentation of the projects below.

   Label Culture Libre

In order to support and promote these initiatives, Wikimedia France has developed the Label Culture Libre, the first label aimed at museums, libraries and archives, which rewards open content and collaborative digital initiatives.

From the choice of the free license to the use of collaborative digital tools, this path expresses the convergence of the operational needs of cultural institutions and the evolution of the general public's uses.

The Label Culture Libre is supported by our partners: Creative Commons France, Club Innovation & Culture CLIC France, and inno3.

   Open content report

The "Report on open content in cultural institutions in France - State of play of digital practices and open content" proposes to evaluate the state of play, the scope and the promises made by open content in France. On April 26, 2022, Wikimedia France and the Phare agency proposed a restitution of the work to 130 cultural actors, at the National Institute of Art History, in Paris.

The report gives an overview of the practices and explores the motivations, obstacles and circumstances of these practices. It is also a guide of good (and bad) practices.

Among its findings, we discover that an average of 85% of GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) digitize their works and 76% put them online. On the other hand, only one third (31%) of the institutions adopt free licenses.

The study goes beyond the panorama and proposes perspectives for the future as well as a few ways to adapt GLAM to the new uses of collaborative digital technology.

The report is in french for the moment but we are working on a translation project. It is available here : https://w.wiki/56wz.

If someone want more infos, i'll be glad to discuss about it.

Best regards,
