I had suggested a list of activities at the beginning of my term as GLAM SIG
here - http://wiki.wikimedia.in/Talk:GLAM_India. I've had to resign as GLAM SIG
Chair mid-term. However, I thought that I should at least provide a summary of
the efforts in India here for the benefit of the members.
However, I believe now to be a good time to begin crafting a GLAM policy for
India for the WMIN Chapter. I understand that many of the Chapter members have
approached various GLAMs in their individual capacity with the intention of
getting the knowledge on Wikimedia projects. You may have been met with varied
levels of responses - from a straight no to an expression of interest to a
willingness to try this out and perhaps an embrace of the concept.
One of the highlights of the GLAM projects in India this year that was
communicated on this list and elsewhere was the BNHS project in Mumbai [short
report here -
the project at the National Museum at New Delhi [page here -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/NM]. I hope the volunteers who
participated in the project were able to appreciate the issues faced and the
problems encountered while undertaking the project.
There are small efforts undertaken by individuals who connect with GLAM
personally using their personal contacts and are working towards getting the
same on Wikimedia at their own pace. Let me take this opportunity to appreciate
their efforts and their dedication.
