This workshop is about the OpenGLAM Benchmark survey, an online survey that will be conducted among heritage institutions throughout the world in the second half of 2014. The purpose of the study is to measure the state of advancement in OpenGLAM (digitization, inter-organisational cooperation involving the exchange of metadata, open data, crowdsourcing, linked data) in a given country, 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 study provides international comparisons, allowing each country to see where it stands compared to other countries.
All in all, this survey will provide the international OpenGLAM community with a tool that helps it 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.
