Dear all,

It has been some time since we have been in contact with you regarding the
OpenGLAM Working Group. In this email we would like to update you on the
current status of our OpenGLAM community, as well as on future plans.

First of all, we would like to officially end our OpenGLAM Working Group.
Community members from Wikimedia, Open Knowledge International and Creative
Commons recently joined forces to reinvigorate the OpenGLAM initiative, and
a more loosely set up structure represents the current community better.

When several months ago these community members came together to restart
work on the OpenGLAM initiative, one of our first steps was to revitalize
the @openglam twitter account
We invited contributors from different parts of the world to showcase and
highlight the way in which OpenGLAM is being understood in different
contexts. A second step was the set up of a survey to check up on the
continued impact of the OpenGLAM Principles
we received over a hundred responses in the past weeks.

To reflect the new direction of the OpenGLAM community, we would now like
to start work on updating our OpenGLAM website, as well as the OpenGLAM
principles, at https://openglam.org/.

In addition we plan to schedule monthly OpenGLAM calls from January 2019
onwards, which are open to everyone working in the OpenGLAM field to join.
Of course you are warmly invited: we will inform everyone on these via our
OpenGLAM mailinglist.

We hope you will be interested to stay involved in our community, as we
would greatly value your feedback and comments as we have done over the
past years.

A warm thanks for all your support to OpenGLAM, and best regards,

Lieke Ploeger
