After we went to help digitize the books in West Sumatra at the end of November, at the beginning of December GLAM Indonesia team continued to North Sumatra to our other partner organization, Museum Daerah Deli Serdang (MDDS), to help with their digitization project. Their collections that are being digitized into Commons are the letters from Sauti (d. 1963), a local artist most famous for creating a dance called Serampang 12 dance, including the original music score and the description of the dance.
In addition to that, GLAM Indonesia is also digitizing the Museum Dewantara Kirti Griya (MDKG) in Yogyakarta. The digitization project was done by a volunteer who previously participated in Wikistories for GLAM competition, who lives in Yogyakarta. This is the first part of the digitization project in this institution. They also agreed to digitize their photo collection and their book collections. (See also our previous partnership with MDKG here, here, here, and here).
Structured Data Marathon: Indonesian Stamps Edition
In our ISA Campaign this year-end, we chose a brand new collection that has not been described through structured data before. Wikimedia Commons has more than 5.400 stamps of all subjects from Indonesia, starting from 1945 (independence) till 2022.
The 8-day-long campaign was met with tremendous enthusiasm, with the first day alone seeing the number of contributions exceed that of the number of files. At the end of the campaign (and the year), the total number of contributions have reached 30 thousand contributions, second only to the 10-weeks long WikiLoves Africa 2022 Campaign in terms of total contributions during a single-campaign.
In terms of numbers: 17 contributors on average contributed 1784 contributions, with the daily average of 3792 contributions, and each stamp image gets an additional six new descriptions on average.
Feel free to browse through the thousands of fascinating pictures from this collection, and even add some descriptions yourselves here!
To increase awareness of the #1Lib1Ref campaign in January, we held an online workshop about how to add references to Indonesian Wikipedia on Zoom that 19 participants attended. GLAM Indonesia plan to organize the annual #1Lib1Ref campaign with the rest of the global Wikimedia movements in January and May 2023.
