Wikipedian in residence at ICAR
The period of residence of the Wikipedian at the Istituto Centrale degli Archivi (ICAR) is ending. The results of the GLAM project will be presented in Rome, at Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, the 21th of March.
The number of Wikipedia articles and other Wikimedia pages using images uploaded by BEIC (Biblioteca Europea di Informazione e cultura) has reached 15.000 pages in February. Images from BEIC were viewed 18,5 million times in the last month, on 360 wikis.
Wikimedia Italia hired a new staff member, Marta Erica Arosio, who will be responsible of the contacts with institutions. We expect that this new resource will help us to boost GLAM projects in Italy in the next years. Welcome Marta!
Check back for a new edition next month.
