What is the GLAM Café?[edit]

GLAM Cafe Schedule, 2015, printable handout

The GLAM Café is an informal gathering, like an Unconference or ThatCamp, where attendees choose their own agenda and break out into special interest groups for whatever interests them. There's usually no set agenda. Sometimes special events or speakers are planned in advance.

We encourage both experienced Wikipedians and people interested in learning more about Wikipedia to attend the GLAM Café. The concept is similar to DC's WikiSalon. You can discuss Wikimedia and wikis, plan Wikipedia-related events, and collaboratively edit Wikipedia. You don't have to be an expert. We're happy to provide suggestions and help on request.

We provide the space and the snacks; you provide the ideas and the enthusiasm. Feel free to propose a topic for discussion... Ask for feedback... Get together to work on shared ideas... Or curl up in a corner and relax… everyone is welcome.

Where do I find out more?[edit]

The GLAM Café is organized by members of PhillyDH, Wikipedians, and people from various hosting institutions. You can get regular announcements and reminders by signing up on the GLAM Café Philadelphia Meetup page. For more information about the organizations and activities involved, you can also see the various hosting organizations.

The GLAM Café is intended to be informal, so you are welcome to drop by without registering. Feel free to bring a friend, or several!
