Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

As more and more chapters develop and implement their GLAM outreach programs, it is time to talk about evaluation again. An earlier workshop on this topic was held at Wikimania 2013 in order to reach a shared vision of what may be achieved by different types of GLAM outreach activities. The results have been documented on the Outreach Wiki. In parallel, the WMF Programme Evaluation team has produced several evaluation reports about programs including one on GLAM content release partnerships, and the GLAM-wiki Toolset Project coordinated by the Europeana Foundation and supported by Wikimedia Netherlands, Wikimedia France, Wikimedia UK, and Wikimedia CH has produced a Report on requirements for usage and reuse statistics for GLAM content. As we work as a community to further develop evaluation strategies and systematic measures we invite community members engaged in GLAM outreach activities to take part in this strategy workshop.

In this workshop we build on earlier efforts by addressing the following questions:

  • How have the different chapters / project teams approached the evaluation of programs and projects in the area of GLAM outreach? (What has been done? What worked well? What didn’t? What are the insights and best practice recommendations?)
  • How can we integrate our GLAM partners' perspective in a program evaluation approach? (What are important goals of GLAMs entering a partnership with Wikimedia/Wikipedia? What are important metrics from their point of view? How can we integrate them into our evaluation approach?)

Workshop plan

  • Short introduction into evaluation (Beat Estermann)
  • 2 short input presentations from chapter representatives (or chapter representatives together with partner GLAM representatives) telling about their experiences with the evaluation of GLAM-Wiki cooperation projects
  • Short input presentation of the GLAM-metrics project from Open Cultuur Data (NL)
  • Workshop part in groups on pinwalls (exact questions to be defined)
  • Wrap-up

Target audience:

  • Wikimedians and GLAM representatives involved in GLAM-Wiki cooperation projects
  • Wikimedians and GLAM representatives considering to get involved in such projects
  • Funding partners of GLAM-Wiki cooperation projects
  • People interested in program evaluation
  • Chapter representatives
