Online editing contest: International Memory of the world register
In May Wikimedia Norge organized an online editing contest about Norges Dokumentarv, the Norwegian documents in the International Memory of the world register which is part of the UNESCOs program Memory of the World. You can see all documents in the register at The Arts Counsil Norway's homepage. 14 new articles were created and
73 references were added. The winner gets a privat tour at The National Archive in Oslo. Still a lot of editing to do on this topic, so we will run the contest again in August, with the same prize. The image shows a document from The National Archive and is the protocoll from Oscarsborg fortress, Oslofjord, on the 9th of April when the ship Blücher was torpedoed and sank.
Speak Norwegian? Access to The National Library's bokhylla.no?
The National Library in Oslo is is digitizing its entire collection. Bokhylla.no is an online service giving users with Norwegian IP addresses access to every book published in Norway up until 2000. Wikimedia Norge can apply on behalf of users without Norwegian IP addresses. Are there any of you who read Norwegian and could have use of this access? Please send my an email before 24.7.2016, astridwikimedia.no, with name and email address which I need for the application.
