2013-05-13 Europeana Fashion Editathon, Centraal Museum Utrecht 36
Europeana Fashion Editathon
(Centraal Museum Utrecht and The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision), two partners of the Europeana Fashion project, organised a fashion themed edit-a-thon in cooperation with Wikimedia Nederland and ModeMuze. The goal of the edit-a-thon was to improve the information and visibility of fashion articles on the Dutch Wikipedia and to projects.
The day started with a general introduction about Wikimedia projects and editing Wikipedia pages. 37 participants have edited, translated or created 27 pages in total.
Wikipedian in Residence
The National Archives of The Netherlands(NA) and the National Library of The Netherlands(KB) are looking for the first Dutch Wikipedian in Residence (WiR). The group of Special Scientific Libraries will start looking for two more WiR's later this year. Currently there is one more project in preparation for WiR's. The expectation is that there will be 3 to 4 Dutch WiR's by the end of the year.

The Wikimedia Hackathon 2013 took place from may 24 to 26 in Amsterdam. Participants have worked on several projects that are very useful for GLAM projects, like Wikimetrics and translation tools.
Wiki loves libraries
The project Wiki loves Libraries has been given a new impulse after an inactive period. Wiki loves bieb is a project of the Public Library and Wikimedia Nederland (WMNL) to promote the use of and improve the quality of articles on Wikipedia. A brainstorm session will be organised in August by BiSC Utrecht and WMNL to make an inventory of activities in the province Utrecht for 2014. Possibly these activities will also take place in the provinces Zeeland, Friesland, Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland.
