Wikimedia Germany is organizing the Wikipedia Academy , and the Call for Papers was released this month, inviting contributions under a set of themes around Wikipedia and free knowledge, many of which match with GLAM activities.
The Long nights of museums and Long nights of the sciences are a series of events that enjoy a growing popularity in Germany, as they bring together GLAM institutions and the public. The first informal GLAM:Wiki partnerships are beginning to take shape within this framework, and interested Wikimedians are welcome to join in.

Between the end of and the beginning of within the project Parco-tag , the staff of the National Technological and Archeological Park of the Colline Metallifere Grossetane has created QR codes from Semapadia to identify mineralogical sites and to link them to Wikipedia articles created to document the territory.

The collection is not open to the public because it is still waiting for its museum; Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Projects represent a very important step to make the collection available for the first time to the public.
This oddly-named institution, which translates to "Object purpose of the Object Museum", was founded in in Mexico City by Bruno Newman of the Zimat Communications company. The purpose of the museum is to promote scholarship of commercial design and communication with the collection as a base. The first donation of images is of 22 objects from the permanent collection and includes items such as packages for cigarettes, soap, mucilage who is old enough remember what that is?
While processing the donation, I found the images extremely useful as many articles either lacked images or lacked image with a historical perspective. However, I also found them difficult to categorize.
The full donation can be seen at Images from the Museo del Objeto del Objeto. Pieter Teyler van der Hulst died in and, in his will, he specified that his collection and capital had to be used for the promotion of art and science. For this purpose, a foundation was set up with five directors who had to manage the money for the specified purpose, including the gathering of knowledge. At that time, most knowledge was reserved for universities and the clergy only.
In Haarlem however, there was no university and the clergy only had limited power. Haarlem was therefore the ideal location to inform the people about science and art. In that age, books were real pieces of art where art and the sciences were brought together, to make showing and describing the discoveries possible. The first purchase with Pieter Teyler's money was the purchase of an encyclopaedia. Wikipedia and the Teyler's Museum both have the same goal: to collect knowledge and make this knowledge available for the public. With this background, a partnership between both institutes has been organized to use the benefits of each.
To kick-off of this partnership, Wikimedia Nederland and the Teyler's Museum organized on 21 January a tour with a view behind the scenes of the oldest museum in the Netherlands. Then the audience was divided into seven groups, each led through the different parts of the museum, with a guide explaining the pieces held in those sections. Afterwards, a New Year reception was held by the chapter at the Grote Markt. With this presentation and tour, The Teylers Challenge was presented: an international writing contest on Wikipedia about subjects that are linked to the Teyler's Museum.
The articles may be written in any language, about a wide spectrum of subjects, and there is only one condition to participate: on the article there must be a blue link to the article of the Teyler's Museum in that language. This means that if the museum article doesn't yet exist in that language, it must be created and that article can be part of the contest as well.
The Teyler's Museum offers us images and information on the relevant topics. Information about some of the topics can be found on their website Teyler's Museum Teylers Universe. The museum will also respond to requests for information or images to be obtained for articles on Wikipedia. The writing contest runs until May and there are prizes to be won, made available by the Teyler's Museum.
The ideals of Pieter Teyler in the 18th century match with the ideals of Wikipedia today. Let's take up the challenge and enrich Wikipedia on the fields of art and science, and share this information with the world. The exhibition "Wiki Loves Art Nouveau" was opened in December on the results of user voting by jury's Wiki Loves Monuments' shortlist WLM is competition dedicated to photographing monuments in different countries.

This project was highlighted on the front page of the Australian Paralympic website and was mentioned in Wikipedia signpost. With the help of the Wikimedian in Residence, 14 spoken word articles about the Paralympic Games and Australia at the Paralympics were contributed to Simple English Wikipedia. These 14 articles represent a large proportion of all Spoken Word articles on Simple Wikipedia, with only 36 other articles having Spoken Word versions on them previously.
Another 14 Spoken Word articles were created on English Wikipedia. Views to the Australian Paralympic Committee related content were down by half from period between 1 December to 30 December from the period between 26 October to November 24 , with 55, article views compared to 76, views. This was attributed to several factors, including the holiday season and the lack of a large number of DYKs helping to drive views to articles. This was followed up by additional research and source work at the National Sport Information Centre where sources were found to help improve articles about Victorian Paralympians active during the late s, s and s.
There has been a major push by Graham87 to add information about Australian Paralympians who have been awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia and other honorary medals. He has updated over 50 articles about individual Paralympians with this information. In addition, there have been several discussions on the hopau mailing list where Paralympians have shared their knowledge and related their experiences about getting these honours for Paralympic medal winners. It has been added to many articles that are covered by the project including Peter Homann , Priya Cooper , Australia men's national goalball team and Australia at the Paralympics.
This has several benefits, including make it easier to find articles, to get better project statistics, and more easily point potential contributors to an assessment area to highlight our best content. Aussiesportlibrarian has gone through many articles about Australia's Paralympic and non-Paralympic competitors to note which ones.
RecentChangesCamp is an Open Space facilitated general wiki conference that has been around since , when it was first held in Portland, Oregon. It has been held yearly ever since in the United States, Canada and Australia, and attracts participants from all over the wiki community including commercial wikis like wikiHow and Wikia staff and community members, non-profit related wiki participants, wiki developers on multiple wiki platforms, open culture enthusiasts, educators using wikis, and people in the GLAM and cultural sector.
It is not a GLAM conference, but GLAM participants have always attended, participated with, interacted with and shared their knowledge with the wider wiki community. They were pleased that the conference was being held in Canberra because members of our local GLAM community were in attendance, and because they had a chance to see wild kangaroos out the window of the event venue. Two took the opportunity to go outside, enjoy the beautiful summer weather and take pictures of the 'roos with the intention of uploading these pictures to Commons.
He talked about the needs of the Indonesian Wikimedia community, issues involving creating Indonesian content on the English and Indonesian Wikipedias, and problems regarding the lack of Indonesia-related pictures on Commons. While attending, he made contact with several Australian and international attendees that will help him with future GLAM efforts in Indonesia, and learned about a conference facilitation that might be useful for him on the ground in Indonesia. The Indonesian report on RecentChangesCamp can be found on their wiki and was mentioned on their Facebook account.
Danny B. The Recent Changes Camp also provided an opportunity to discuss some concerns about how broadly the GLAM concept is being used and how that affects Chapter support of volunteer activities. The idea is related to how Chapters can:. John Vandenberg , Whiteghost.
