Abstract

The OpenGLAM Benchmark Survey, is an online survey that is conducted among heritage institutions throughout the world. It measures the state of advancement of OpenGLAM in various countries and identifies the main challenges and obstacles with regard to the promotion of open cultural data and free access to knowledge.

In addition, the international benchmark survey provides international comparisons, allowing each country to see where it stands compared to other countries.

While data collection is still ongoing in many countries, the first results from Poland and Finland are presented.

Detailed proposal

The OpenGLAM Benchmark Survey, is an online survey that is conducted among heritage institutions throughout the world. The purpose of the survey is to measure the state of advancement of OpenGLAM in the various countries (digitization, inter-organisational cooperation involving the exchange of metadata, open data, crowdsourcing, linked data), and to identify the main challenges and obstacles with regard to the promotion of open cultural data and free access to knowledge.

In addition, the international benchmark survey provides international comparisons, allowing each country to see where it stands compared to other countries.

Thus, the survey provides the international OpenGLAM community and the GLAM-Wiki community with a tool that helps their members to better understand the particularities of each country, to put insights gained in a country into a broader perspective, and to better adapt strategies and best practices to the specific situation of each country.

At the GLAM-Wiki session, we will present and discuss the results from Poland and Finland.

More information about the survey is available on the project's webpage.
