GLAM/IFLA Case Studies/Form





Make sure to write content that answers the following questions:

  • What opportunity allowed for working with Wikimedia projects? Did it require additional resources, such as funding, volunteer support or a employee at the institution, to get started?
  • What experience did your library have before this activity that made this project possible?
  • Make sure to describe the kind of library: what type of library? What IFLA sections does this library represent?


  • What did you intend to be the impact for this project?
  • What library activities did you think would benefit from this project?
  • How did you plan to measure or evaluate that impact?


  • What was each step for the project? For each step:
    • Who was involved?
    • What tools did you use?
    • Did you create or refer to documentation? (include both English and non-English documentation)



Some questions that might help you write this section:

  • Did you meet your goals?
  • Did you collect data help you evaluate whether or not you met your goals?
  • Do you have any statistics or evidence of your impact?
  • What unmeasurable or hard-to-measure outcomes happened as a result of the project?

Reflection and lessons learned

  • What challenges did you anticipate and how did you plan to overcome them? Did your plan work?
  • Did any challenges come up that you did not expect? What did you do to respond to that work?
  • What would you do differently next time? What advice would you give to someone looking to do a similar project?
