GLAM/Newsletter/November 2015/Contents/Sweden report
Exhibitions and more images
The Swedish Exhibition Agency tour has continued during November with four workshops in Visby, Östersund, Vadstena and Gävle and a total of 27 participants from more then ten GLAMs. Articles about exhibitions (100 år Nationalmuseum, Efter Tsunamin – barns berättelser från Asien och Sverige) and concepts (Kulturarvspedagogik, Världsutställning, Utställningsdesign, and more) has been expanded and created, and more articles are growing in sandboxes or waiting for feedback and publication. Some of the GLAMs are also working on digitizing images and new policies for making material available under free and open licenses to be able to illustrate both the articles they are creating and already existing articles.
Four more workshops are scheduled for December, and the contracted writers will continue to produce articles about concepts and biographies for the rest of the year.

In what has become a long term collaboration effort we completed the third major upload from the Royal Armoury, Skokloster Castle and the Hallwyl Museum (LSH). 6,500 high resolution images were uploaded depicting various objects from the vast collections of the museums. This continues LSH's policy of making their material available in the highest possible resolution, which goes on alongside the ongoing project of digitising their collections. Iterating on what we've learnt from the previous two uploads we managed to streamline many of the steps further thus making the next upload even better. The museum will also publish a blog post on the internal benefits of exposing images and metadata to the public in bulk.

notes from Katy
The photo of the taxidermied reindeer is pretty amazing! The video "More real than reality" captures quite well what a GLAM can do with a partnership with Wikimedia. The video was extremely well done and compelling! Can't wait to see the museum's blog post. Thanks for sharing all of this. KLove (WMF) (talk) 00:08, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
