[Epic] Support a selection of diverse new GLAM pilot projects that involve Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons
Open, MediumPublic


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
  • helps to make sure that the pilot projects are diverse, and address as many relevant aspects of GLAM uploads as possible, including
    • diverse media types (image, video, audio, pdf, 3D...)
    • diverse genres of content (photographs, visual artworks, objects from everyday life, activities...)
    • diverse groups and organisations contributing the media (volunteers, libraries, archives, museums, other knowledge institutions...)
    • highlighting various aspects of GLAM uploads (smooth uploading process from GLAM databases; interesting enrichment of files; statistics about the impact of uploads...)
  • and works with Wikimedia affiliates and communities to actively support and document the most relevant learnings, good and bad.

By the end of 2019, together, we have achieved a representative set of well-documented pilot projects and case studies, that can serve as examples of best practice that affiliates and community members can learn from, be inspired by, and build upon.
