During the last day of the pre-conference activities, Gelman library hosted a Wikipedia Loves Libraries workshop. OCLC Wikipedian in Residence Max Klein gave an overview of Wikipedia for librarians and a number of other speakers presented individual case studies of libraries and archives collaborating with the Wikimedia projects.
On Thursday, the first day of the main conference, there were three GLAM-related streams throughout the day there were three GLAM-related streams; the first centred upon legal issues appertaining to GLAM and the second upon GLAM outreach projects around the world. The third was sponsored by the US Department of State and featured 4 presentations on local wikis.
The day ended with Wikimedians visiting the Newseum for the GLAM night out. The consisted of networking with US GLAM employees, the launch of the GLAM-Wiki US Consortium and a panel entitled "The Sponsored Point of View: Financial Conflicts of Interest in Health Care and Science".
Day 2 - Friday 13th
Friday was the day of GLAM panels. The first sessions of the day included the GLAM III: Outreach stream which included a panel of GLAM professionals who, chaired by Dominic McDevitt-Parks (Dominic), told of their own experiences working with Wikimedia. After the break, there was a panel of national GLAM co-ordinators from across the globe. They each summarised how they had come to take up their role and their experiences in it before taking questions.
The afternoon's GLAM sessions centred upon photography events. Organisers of Wiki Loves Monuments projects talked about their experiences and looked forward to this year's competition which will include 33 countries from all across the globe. The final GLAM session was on photo hunt events. Organizers of events spoke of their individual experiences before coming together for a panel.
The day ended with a closing plenary from Archivist of the United States David Ferriero. He called himself a "huge fan of Wikipedia", and acknowledged that one large challenge is that most GLAM institutions are still wary of the "radical" notion of Wikipedia. With changing technologies, Ferriero said that the online world is "changing the way [GLAMs] think about archival work." The biggest challenge in this new world is visibility, so he stated that GLAMs need to be "aware of where the people are."
