In October, our team was mainly busy with preparation for November's Open GLAM Conference, but there's still some events going on, other than the closing of last month's Wikistories for GLAM Competition that saw participants wrote 385 stories and uploaded 937 new images to Commons.
Bincang GLAM - GLAM Talk
Started during the pandemic, our podcast series, called Bincang GLAM, or GLAM Talk, is rebooted again. Our first edition talked about Wikistories which were trialed in Indonesian Wikipedia. Our first guest was from History of Java Museum. She participated in the Wikistories for GLAM Competition and gave her feedback about using the tool, from a GLAM institution point of view. We also had Bona, who's the community liaison for Wikistories project.
Javanese Wikisource Workshop
Since it's launch last year, Javanese Wikisource has entered a steady period of growth, but we always needed new contributors to proofread the ever growing collection of Javanese books, in Javanese script and Latin. For that purpose, the Javanese community held a Workshop for editing in Javanese Wikisource (dubbed Wikisumber). For those who are interested in watching the recorded workshop, feel free to leave a message to the author of this newsletter.
