Welcome Sandra Fauconnier for Structured Data on Commons
Sandra Fauconnier (User:Spinster/User:Sfaucconier) has started working on the Structured Data on Commons project, with the main focus as being the Community Liason for the project. However, her deep expertise and support of GLAM-Wiki projects over the last few years, means that she will be also working on supporting GLAM needs in both Wikidata and the Commons as part of the project.
Last month, Alex announced working on the documentation for GLAM-Wiki. Though originally planning to run a categorization drive for the This Month in GLAM archive, that tactic has been put on pause, do to several concerns about the usefulness of that data. We are reevaluating the workflow and process, and hope to have an update soon.
Additionally, the new portal for GLAM case studies and models has been updated.
Alex supported a number of other projects, including:
- Uploads to Wikimedia Commons for the collaboration with
- Submitting a book Chapter for an OCLC book on Wikipedia and Libraries
- Supporting the development of a GLAM user group
