SDC Pilot: provide feedback for RAÄ's project on Wikimedia Commons Data Roundtripping
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The Swedish National Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. This will become easier thanks to the improved APIs from StructuredDataOnCommons.

The project is documented on Meta: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Commons_Data_Roundtripping

Outcomes are:

  • Research report on the desirability and requirements of GLAM-collections managers in regards to retrieving metadata added to their files post-upload on Wikimedia Commons
  • A tested prototype tool that supports GLAM-collections managers in identifying, reviewing and retrieving added or changed metadata to media files.
  • Report on lessons learned and recommend future actions (or inaction).

@SandraF_WMF advises this project by keeping an eye on developments related to StructuredDataOnCommons.
