Europeana; Working Life Museums
Ingestion to Europeana
As a part of the Då och Nu competition, one task was to ingest the images into Europeana. This was completed last year and reported earlier. However it turned out to reuse that script to also ingest all images from the Swedish Wiki Loves Monuments competitions. Now that have been done and over 14 000 images in Commons are now also searchable through Europeana. The image sets of the different competitions are available here:
Working life museums workshops
In January two workshops to volunteers from Working life museums were held. The first one in Kristianstad with 14 participants and the second one in Trollhättan with six eager students showing up. The aim is to get volunteers involved in different small museums to participate with both their knowledge and also with images and other material they have in their archives. Through the cooperation with the Council of Working Life Museums we have found more then new editors, they have also been a great partner in Wiki Loves Monuments by providing both lists with museums and prices for the contest.
