GLAM in Russia: need more contests
If to be brief, in May we
Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
And within the framework of the Open Library project we were held seminars in Murmansk and Stavropol, where Recommendations for libraries on the use of open licenses and publication of works in the open access mode was introduced to the local librarians community. All events of Open library are made with the use of the grant of the President of the Russian Federation for the development of civil society provided by the Foundation for Presidential Grants.
Also in May we did a rare thing: wrote the GLAM report :) In this process we found that never talked about ru:Проект:GLAM/Garage! It was launched in November 2017 as the result of cooperation between Wikimedia Russia and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and at the moment it contains more than 40 new articles and more than 30 cc-by-sa photos.
- @Lvova: It's really exciting to see so many programs happening in Russia! What seems to be having the most impact? Is the libraries program helping your community grow? Astinson (WMF) (talk) 21:00, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
- As the libraries program is the typical GLAM project, it primarily helps to gain more free knowledge, probably not people; we didn't publish it yet, but we received also a new grant to expand the program to other types of institutions. It's hard for me to compare as a whole contests, the grant and the collaboration with Garage to say what gives the better impact; too different areas. For example, Garage project is the first of it's kind in Russia and may be an example for others, and contests give us new users and encourage existing Wikimedians.
