SESSION SUMMARY[edit | edit source]

Institutions wants visibility, but their goal should not be to sell tickets

The majority of glam are small institutions, with a very different and broad set of topics and content covered.

They can build better processes and learn something (e.g. personality rights)

Information designed used as research tool for measuring "wikipedia primary school project" glam visual tool

Visualizing the change of the knowledge landscape after the contributions of an institution

  • how images are used
  • size of the articles
  • visualizing the impact of an institution through wikipedia

Instead of using the number of page views, you can visually see the categories and the articles that were expanded.

It i possible to check if a specific content, maybe held by only that small museum. It is also possible to re-balance knowledge, by adding new perspecitives that are not represented in major collections.

Besides the creation and expansion of articles, you can see new links and connections being made
