Wikisource meetup and letter translations
Indonesian Wikisource meetup in Jakarta
On April 24, 2019, Wikimedia Indonesia conducted an informal Wikisource meetup in Jakarta. This event was held to gain some helps from Wikisource editors to transcribe some pages of Majalah Aboean Goeroe-Goeroe that was digitized by Wikimedia Indonesia in 2018 from Minangkabau Culture Documentation and Information Center in Padangpanjang City, West Sumatra.
For 3 hours, the contributors successfully proofread more than 20 pages of several editions of the magazine. More than 10 pages had been validated. All contributions were recorded at wscontest/c/13.
This meetup is one of Wikimedia Indonesia's efforts to introduce Wikisource, a Wikipedia sister project, to Indonesian Wikimedian community. All events related to Wikisource, such as Wikisource trainings or meetups, are organized under GLAM 2018 subproject.

Wikimedia Indonesia, in November 2018, joined forces with local digitization team led by Dr. Pramono in West Sumatra, has successfully digitized private collections of A. Damhoeri, a prominent litterateur of West Sumatra. He wrote many books and collected a huge of books, mainly about religious and Minangkabau culture-related books in his library. Unfortunately, as he passed away, it is not well-maintained, so more than half of the collections are damaged.
However, these collections are now safe as the digitization team helped the family to reorganize the books and digitized most of the collections. Some of them are available on Commons, and will be uploaded by GLAM team of Wikimedia Indonesia gradually.
