GLAM 2018  

The Ottawa Declaration Working Group, in association with Library and Archives Canada and the Canadian Museums Association, hosted “Taking it to the Next Level: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAMs) Summit 2018.” The event was held on January 30, 2018 at The Royal Ontario Museum, 100 Queen's Park, Toronto, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Building on last year’s Summit on the Value of GLAMs, this year’s meeting was an interactive day of discussion drawing on the following themes:

  1. Communities: How can collaborative relationships among GLAMs benefit local communities, as well as provide greater opportunities for building links and fostering community identity?
  2. Indigenous peoples: How can GLAMs work more closely with Indigenous peoples to renew relationships based on mutual understanding and respect?
  3. Private sector: How can GLAMs work with the private sector to encourage greater innovation?
  4. Government priorities: How can GLAMs advance their interests vis-à-vis various levels of government?
