Dear Open GLAM Community,

I work in Centrum Cyfrowe (https://centrumcyfrowe.pl/en/homepage/) and do a
research project about open access policies and business models of European
museums, which we are conducting together with Wikimedia Deutschland.

I'm looking for direct contacts to museums' employees that deal with their
open policies, digital collections and in general sharing their
institution's collections online freely (using e.g. Open GLAM Principles).

The aim of the research project is to measure the impact that open policies
of sharing digitised heritage resources have on museums. The results of the
project would be very helpful for Wikimedia in their cooperation with GLAM

The questionnaire that consists of four short parts can be found here:

After analyzing all data that we’ll receive, we’ll be more than happy to
come back to museums with our results and reflections. We hope that it will
be useful when thinking about its business model in the context of open

Please feel free to ask any question about the research.

If you'd like to know a little bit more about Centrum Cyfrowe and what we
do in Open GLAM:
We're (https://centrumcyfrowe.pl/en/homepage/) a think-and-do thank that
has experience researching and working with GLAM institutions. We were
involved in the Open GLAM Benchmark Survey Project (
https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM/OpenGLAM_Benchmark_Survey) and on
the basis of our study in Poland we prepared a report “Openness in cultural
institutions” [in Polish] (https://bit.ly/2zuFRLL). Centrum Cyfrowe is also
a co-founder and a member of COMMUNIA (https://www.communia-association.org/)
that advocates for policies that expand the public domain and increase
access to and reuse of culture and knowledge. This study is conducted in
cooperation with Wikimedia Deutschland.

If you're not the employee of the museum that we're looking for, maybe
would you be able to help me getting in touch with museums' employees that
could take part in the research? If there is somebody else that we should
reach out to with this request within your institution or other, I would be
very grateful if you could let me know.

Kind Regards,
