After the completion of the proofread competition held in collaboration with Two Centuries of Indian Print (TCIP) project of the British Library on Bengali Wikisource, which was reported in the last GLAM newsletter, West Bengal Wikimedians User Group started the third iteration of Rabimas proofread competition which focuses on works written by Rabindranath Tagore. TCIP extended their support by uploading 4 books written by Tagore on Wikimedia Commons, which were scanned under their project. Later on, a python script was developed by Mahir256 to easily download books scanned by TCIP which were stored on the BL website as IIIF manifest and convert them to PDF files. This script is readily being used by volunteers to download from the TCIP collections and convert the books into PDF and later upload them to Wikimedia Commons eventually. Till now, more than 50 public domain books have been uploaded in total. The detailed on-wiki documentation of the collaboration can be found here.
