The workshop was attended by 13 participants. About half of them would continue to participate in the Indonesian Wikisource Competition a week later.
GLAM Outreach to Bandung, West Java
GLAM Indonesia continued its outreach to various institution around Indonesia. This time we visited Bandung, the capital of West Java, and 150 km from Jakarta. Our team visited several institutions: the first one was Ajip Rosidi Library, with whom we had the pleasure of working together in the past (before the pandemic). We were greeted with enthusiasm, and there was around 48 microfilms that contain important Sundanese manuscripts, that needed to be digitized with special machine. We borrowed one of them, to be processed in Jakarta's National Archive (ANRI), and hopefully we will be able to digitize those microfilms to Commons.
From 16th-30th of May, the Indonesian Wikisource Community organized the fourth annual Indonesian Wikisource competition. This year's highly anticipated competition saw a fierce race between the participants, and resulted in 32 books (8632 pages) being validated, with 1763 edits per day from 38 active participants. That's 616 pages being proofread and validated every day, or 227 pages per participants. The competition grew in size each year, from 5 books in 2020, 16 in 2021, 10 Indonesian books in 2022, and finally a record of 32 books this year. The participation rate was beyond what the team had anticipated.
From the 76 registered users (with 61 of them contributing at least once) - many of them are new to Wikisource and/or Wikimedia movement, and many of them joined after participating in previous workshops or competition (Balinese Wikisource competition last July, Javanese Wikisource competition last March, and Sundanese Wikisource competition last April). We hope that in the future competitions, we can keep the high contribution rate and attract many more volunteers to the Indonesian Wikisource.
