Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
GLAMwiki is one of the most successful tracks in Catalan Wikipedia. In this presentation I will show how all-size institutions can get into GLAMwiki projects, showing several succesful projects, done without many resources but with the commitment of both communities: Wikipedians and GLAMprofessionals. I want to explain how non-English Wikipedias can enlarge their audiences and their editor's communities using existing cultural communities (i.e.:Friends of the museums, universities, museum-retired professionals...)
Track (Wikis and the Public Sector; GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums); WikiCulture and Community; Research, Analysis, and Education; Technology and Infrastructure)
