A Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) Lab is a place for
experimenting with digital collections and data. It is where researchers,
artists, entrepreneurs, educators and the interested public can collaborate
with an engaged group of partners to create new collections, tools, and
services that will help transform the future ways in which knowledge and
culture are disseminated. These Labs play a significant role in the
transformation of large digital collections into data.

So far there was no systematic guidance on establishing GLAM Labs. In
September a team of 16 international experts wrote the book ‘Open a GLAM
Lab’ in five days during a booksprint and now this book is available under
a CC0 licence on https://qspace.qu.edu.qa/handle/10576/12115  and also
accessible from the website of the International GLAM Labs community,

We are sharing with the CODATA community where many colleagues may be
interested in the collections as data aspects of this work.
