GLAM communities of practice; Problematic data
WMSE-WMF joint initiative concerning GLAM communities of practice
Starting from July 2019, Wikimedia Sverige and the Wikimedia Foundation's GLAM team work together on an initiative to create a better and more sustainable technical infrastructure for global heritage and content partnerships.
This initiative is still in its very early stages. A first presentation about it was given at Wikimania, and on the submission page you can also find the notes with questions from the session.
Feel free to send us questions about this, or use the talk page on meta to discuss and learn more about this initiative.
On Friday, August 30, we had a workshop in Stockholm for GLAM institutions on problematic data on open platforms. Bas Nederveen from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam gave a lecture on their terminology projects and how they worked with descriptive information in their database. The workshop focused on what has been done in the area and how the institutions want to do when sensitive material is to be released with free licenses. The workshop is part of the project FindingGLAMs and was carried out with the Swedish National Heritage Board. All the lectures were recorded and are available on Commons. Feel free to reach out to us and let us know about other work in the area.
