Minor grants and Library training
FindingGLAMs, Wikimedia Sverige's project aiming at increasing the quantity and quality of material related to cultural heritage institutions on the Wikimedia projects, has opened its Minor grants program. WMSE is offering one-time financial support for Wikimedia communities around the world to enable them to organize GLAM-focused events and similar activities. You can help us by spreading the message in your local Wikimedia community!
Wikipedia in the Libraries
In the project Wikipedia i biblioteken (Wikipedia in the libraries) we are working with articles and learning modules at the web platform Digiteket. Digiteket is a learning platform for librarians in Sweden, aiming to give library staff training in digital skills needed to meet new challenges. Being able to write articles and understand Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects is part of this training. At the same time, we plan five workshops in January–March 2020 for a total of 125 people. Participants in the workshops must have taken the Wikipedia courses at Digiteket and be interested in working to develop their work in free knowledge, both for themselves and for the public by arranging meetings in different areas of interest. Some examples of inspirational articles on Digiteket (in Swedish).
