GLAM Inventory

An inventory of all Swiss GLAM institutions

⛶ Full screen

Switzerland has a great ammount of libraries, archives and museums, but we are still missing a common directory of all these heritage institutions.

Challenge: The goal is to create a complete inventory of Swiss libraries, archives and museums and to find a solution for the data maintenance of this directory.

Vision: The "ideal" directory of Swiss GLAMs is up-to-date, complete, user-friendly, internationally compatible and structured. The contents are indexed and categorized, accessible to people and machine readable. Information about the collections and opening hours are included and a differentiated accessibility is ensured.

Scope: The directory could be used for the compilation of statistics, for research on collection holdings, institutions and/or events (research, reference works, tourism).
