Fonds André Cros
The city of Toulouse decided to release under a free licence all the images it has the copyright of. This included 7000+ pictures from André Cros of 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, including lot of Civil Aviation history alongside operettas, sportspeople, and artists of these years.
Several libraries, librarians and other people are currently taking part in the third edition of the #1Lib1Ref campaign. This year, Wikimedia France got the support of the ABES (Bibliographic Agency of Higher Education) which has supported the project diffusing and communicating on it among its network. Final results next month but, right now, the French is at the second place in numbers of references added (thanks to others french speaking country, in particular in Québec!).

Maquette du rover de Mars 2020 exposée dans le hall du LATMOS.
The LATMOS is a research laboratory specialized in terrestrial and planetory atmospheric analysis. It was involved for example in the Rosetta project. The laboratory is planning to gather archives and images of the robots and instruments which were used in the past projects. In this context, a presentation of Wikipedia was made during december to the ex-staff members of LATMOS. The gathering could take a while but this collaboration could lead to partnership focused on Wikimedia commons and Wikipedia editing.
