An agreement has been signed between the French National Archives and Wikimédia France. The Archives will upload photographs from their collections and write articles on the institution and archives.
AncelyBot has finished uploading the Fonds Ancely: Personal collections of Réné Ancely acquired by the city of Toulouse in 1967 and curated by the Bibliothèque municipale de Toulouse. As a result, over 2000 pictures were automatically uploaded by AncelyBot after volunteers from Wikimédia France GLAM workgroup have worked on the metadata conversion process.
