Shaping Access conference; Donation of scientific movies
The Jewish Museum
in Berlin, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2011.
October 22nd & 23rd: Wikimedia Germany held together with four more partners a GLAM Conference at the Jewish Museum in Berlin:
ShapingAccess! More responsibility for cultural heritage
Wikipedia and Wiki loves Monuments were well-used examples for best practice: sharing information and gaining mutual benefits. More than 200 executives of GLAM institutions attended the two days conference. Essential was Pavel Richter's (CEO WMDE) claim:
||Nicht der Zugang zu kulturellem Erbe unterliegt einer Begründungspflicht, sondern dessen Verknappung. #ke12
This can be translated to "It is not the access to cultural heritage that is obliged to argue for itself but its scarcity."
Please follow German press echo here and read the Wikimedia Blog.
The conference will be followed up by a national screening of access policies and cooperation projects in GLAM institutions.
Within the framework of Wikimedia Germany's attempts to strengthen its ties with research institutions, a series of about two dozen science videos have been released by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology for upload to Wikimedia Commons. They have been produced as part of the project InsideScience – Öffentliche Wissenschaft in Sonderforschungsbereichen (public science in collaborative research centres). Some test uploads are embedded here. German and English subtitles are available for some of them and will be made available as well.
