Bibliothèque universitaire de la Sorbonne; Laboratoire Latmos; Study day on photographic as heritage
Bibliothèque universitaire de la Sorbonne
We recently met the BIS which is interested in wikimedia projects and the digital valorization of their archives. Further to this meeting, we found a vast field of action.
First of all, training of BIS staff would ensure their autonomy on wikimedia projects. In addition, the library owns 2 000 documents and 170 000 files (iconographies, manuscripts, ...) on their virtual platform. That could enrich Wikimedia commons and Wikipedia.
The project also plans to create or improve the Wikipedia articles of PhD students and professors from the Sorbonne, and help with their categorization.
Finally, wikidata could benefit from databases of teachers.
The Latmos project progesses slowly but surely. A meeting with a few dozen contributors permitted to show the interest of the community for these themes and identify a work methodology consisting in working on a sample of spatial objects in order to define a replicable model of contribution on the wikimedia projects.
Study day on photographic as heritage
A day of study around the conservation and the valorization of photographic collections was held at Champs Libres on May 18th, 2018. It was run by the GwinZegal Art Center, the Museum of Brittany and the Brittany Museums Association. It included a 15 minutes Wikipedia presentation about possible actions and partnerships.
