[Story] GLAM pilot projects and case studies for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons
Closed, ResolvedPublicDec 30 2019


With SDC General, it will become easier for GLAMs (cultural institutions - Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to contribute media files to Wikimedia Commons, and to reap more benefits from their contributions there.

To test and initiate the new features of Structured Commons and their value for GLAMs, a series of GLAM pilot projects take place; where relevant, they will be documented on-wiki in case studies.

The GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation encourages such pilot projects to happen, and works with Wikimedia affiliates and communities to actively support and document the most relevant learnings, good and bad, so that the pilot projects and case studies serve as examples of best practice that affiliates and community members can learn from, be inspired by, and build upon.
