How to Submit a Case Study[edit]

Hi All, I'm interested in adding a GLAM Case Study on the recent Art+Feminism Edit-a-Thons, which I helped organize at Eyebeam, but am not sure how this page works. Is this a curated list or is anyone open to create a case study and post here. Let me know bc I am ready to add once this question is answered! OR drohowa (talk) 04:44, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

requesting better control on admin privileges[edit]

It has come to attention that admin User name ponyo, Joe decker, ground zero Are receiving tons of complaints by purposely vandalizing known USA living Person pages that they have no legal rights which is also somehow accessing IP addresses which some editors who create pages served in armed forces. I demand these admin have their privileges revoked and put back what they deleted. They seem to target certain pages and has been reported to federal agency's for they should not have access to IP addresses or Personally attacking and upsetting the editors They were asked to stop more than several times

Please put back the deleted living prone pages and sources and revoke them And block them

Hi. What does it have to do with GLAM? PiRSquared17 (talk) 12:32, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Acronym[edit]

In the GLAM newsletter, a prominent link at the top should probably go to the main GLAM page, and even in the text it might make sense to spell out what GLAM means somewhere near the top. It took me over five minutes to figure out it didn't mean "Gay, Lesbian, something, and something". SMcCandlish (talk) 12:28, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Quality of images[edit]

I've noticed that many of the categories of images that have been donated aren't really being used over the various Wikis. I just went through the EnergieAgenturNRW donations; most of them are of people giving talks at conferences or trade showns... I don't really see how having so many pictures of speakers can be very useful to Wikipedia. I identified about a dozen or so that could be of use, so out of a batch of about 2000 images we have maybe 12 we can use for articles here. We appreciate the donations, but they don't really seem to "fit well" into articles. Can we perhaps ask for quality over quantity?

There are multiple images of the same speaker in the EnergieAgenturNRW donations for example. I've noticed that we seem to get donations from various organizations, and they just sit here on Commons and aren't being used in the various Wikis. I mean no disrespect to anyone, but I hate to see all these donations not really being used for anything. Oaktree b (talk) 03:58, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Józef Piłsudski Institute of America has only 21 images being used, out of 1200 or so. The Swiss Archive donated over 5000, but we're only using 180. The Neuchâtel Herbarium donated 4000, and we're using 13. We should ask for more quality images, rather than just a bulk upload of images. Oaktree b (talk) 03:58, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Mudanza[edit]

As many of the here presented tools have been moved to tool,wmflabs.org, how is assured that the links will be corrected? Google links me still to this page first looking for GLAM tools and than from here to the nirwana.--Barbara Fischer (WMDE) (talk) 12:12, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

GLAM Repository[edit]

I have started a GLAM repository to try to monitor what is going on and what has happened. In the category case studies there is a list of subcategories which highlight the kind of collaborations implemented. it would be really useful to have this information highlighted also in a repository, so we can make sure experiences are also included in the right categories. --Iopensa (talk) 23:55, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

1/3 of the tools no longer working[edit]

I was just looking at GLAM/Resources/Tools and 1/3 of the tools are no longer working. What shall we do with the them? Does anybody know the status of any of them? --Jarekt (talk) 15:41, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

BaGLAMa[edit]

I would like to add c:Category:Media contributed by Józef Piłsudski Institute of America to BaGLAMa, but I can not find any documentation on how to do it. Can someone help me with it? --Jarekt (talk) 15:43, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi User:Jarekt! Can you clarify what/what page BaGLAMa is? I might be able to help but am not sure which page you mean(?) OR drohowa (talk) 18:54, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
