Research activity and GLAM-Wiki initiatives
First day of the event "Information curation and web semantics".
The Wiki Movimento Brasil has been active in research activities related to GLAMs and Wikimedia projects. A research paper was published and another was submitted and is under review in the context of outreach activities with cultural institutions and technological development. The paper The potential of structured narratives for Computational Journalism: journalistic skills in the elaboration of database generated texts investigates in a peer-reviewed journal on Digital Humanities the use of Wikidata-generated narratives to improve content on Wikipedia. This has been used for producing structured drafts for content on GLAMs as well as other topics. A paper comparing digital strategies of Brazilian GLAM-Wiki initiatives and Google Arts Projects has been submitted to a peer-reviewed journal on Collection Management.
The Wiki Movimento Brasil has supported the academic event "Information curation and web semantics" in São Paulo, which brought together different teams from Brazilian universities working with GLAMs. The event was organized in two days: on the first day, teams presented their goals, achievements and challenges --three members of the user group presented among other contributors to free knowledge; on the second day, ideas to collaborate and proposals to integrate processes were discussed. A research and technical agenda was discussed to integrate Wikidata and Commons content feeding with a Wordpress plug-in developed in Brazil for managing and displaying cultural collections, called Tainacan. More details on the event are on a special page on Wikiversity.
