Museum and library visits
Site visits were done to several GLAM institutions in the beginning of 2020 to talk about the ongoing activities and to follow up proposed collaboration.
Ajip Rosidi Library and Library of Kirtigriya Museum are the institutions Wikimedia Indonesia is currently working with. Meanwhile, Indonesia Museum of Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, Deli Serdang Museum, and STAIS Al-Ishlahiyah are some institutions we have been proposing the collaboration. We are trying our best to make the cooperation between these institutions happen this year.
