The work with linking the authority data of the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and the National Historical Museums to Wikidata continues. The property National Historical Museums of Sweden agent ID, created a couple months ago, has been populated with over 7,000 items – all done by the museum staff, working on cleaning up and linking their authority posts. Also the Nationalmuseum's property has been added to about 2,000 items. This, in turn, has made it possible to import more information about whom the artworks in Nationalmuseum's collections depict – as you can see in this query.
We also spoke about the project at WikidataCon, where we introduced the prototypes of the data visualisation that are being developed by Albin Larsson. You can have a look at this map, which maps the international connections between Sweden and the countries of origin of its monarchs' spouses.
Sörmland Museum has hosted a project for students at the folk high school of Nyköping, writing articles on local historical companies in and around Nyköping. The museum provided sources for the students to use in their articles, showed artifacts from the collections connected to some of the companies, and helped students in their reference library. Wikimedia Sverige held a workshop with the students, teaching them how to edit Wikipedia articles. The groups improved six articles on various topics such as an old hospital and an automobile company. We hope this will lead to more collaboration in the future!
Stockholm City Museum ♥ Wikipedia
As a restart of the work with the Wikimedia projects by the Stockholm City Museum they hosted a presentation by Axel Pettersson, WMSE, at their October staff meeting. Almost 30 staff members learned about how Wikipedia and the other projects works, ways to contribute material and knowledge and how to reuse and see stats from relevant articles and material uploaded to Commons. A follow up workshop with more hands on editing, uploading and finding gaps to fill is planned for the beginning of next year.
