Wikimedia CH launched together with the Swiss Association of Archivists, the awareness campaign to support the International Archives Week 2023.
This year's International Archives Week took place from June 5 to June 9, 2023 and focused on the topic "ArchivesUnited". We aimed to motivate GLAM professionals and our volunteers to support us in improving and completing the presence of Archives on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata in Switzerland.
Wikimedia CH also organised a GLAM Digital, an online round table about the Swiss Archive Landscape.

Our 12th GLAM-On-Tour took place from the 29th of June to the 1st of July in Zug. GLAM-on-Tour offers a unique occasion to bring the community in the GLAM institutions.
We got the opportunity to organise this GLAM-On-Tour with the Library of Zug and the Doku-Zug Documentation center.
We welcomed 12 participants. They mainly worked in the German Wikipedia, creating and bettering many articles around Zug and its history. On this occasion, the participants also uploaded photos, available in the following category, and also worked on Wikidata.
