Ravi,
When I observe the activities of the Dutch chapter I find that they take up
things that volunteers are not able to.  They are things that are often
complex and take a large network. What the Dutch chapter does for GLAM is
much more than reaching out to individual GLAM institutions. It takes a
full time effort of very dedicated people.

Your assumption that it is about building a better Wikipedia indicates to
me how limited your notion is about what it takes to "share in the sum of
all knowledge".

I do not know CIS enough to categorically state that they are in the same
league. What I have seen is however encouraging. What I do know and I said
it before, the challenges to bring the sum of all knowledge to India is
overwhelming. The biggest challenge apparently is people.
Thanks,
      GerardM
