Are you curious about how the Open a GLAM Lab Book had been created?
Following the launch of the book on 30 October 2019 in Doha, several of the authors contributing to the book wrote about their experience and their reflection.
Some institutions also spread the news on the arrival of the book, which is available from the website of the GLAM labbers community and the OA repository of Qatar University, QSpace. To have a complete picture, the list also features the blog post which announces the start of the booksprint.
It is amazing to see what is the geographical spread of these blogs:
Here are the links to these texts (so far in English, Arabic and Spanish) arranged in chronological order. The list had been updated on 11 December 2019.
