The GLAM-Wiki Revolution

This post was written by Joe Sutherland and User:Rock drum

During Wikimania 2014 last week, we were lucky enough to be able to screen our documentary about the GLAM-Wiki programme in the UK. The film brings together interviews with some of the Wikimedians in Residence from institutions across the country – and with Wikimedia UK staff. We want it to function as an outreach tool – as a way of teaching people about the GLAM programme, but also as a celebration of the work of so many volunteers and paid Wikimedians in Residence.

Over the coming weeks we will be sharing additional content from this project, written interviews and shorter videos which will also be published through Wikimedia UK’s channels. We will also be releasing some of the source footage on Wikimedia Commons under a Creative Commons license.

We are pleased to be able to share this video online, both on YouTube and Wikimedia Commons. We hope you enjoy it.
