During September, work has begun teaching staff at the National museums to edit Wikipedia and to upload images to Wikimedia Commons. So far three workshops have taken place, with around 25 curators and experts having improved and created new articles. Three more workshops are planned during October and November, as well a day dedicated to copyright, licensing and an in-depth session on uploading to and using Wikimedia Commons.
