Opening up (with) the Prussians!
GLAM on Tour at Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg
GLAM on Tour got invited by the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg. Yes, really. Tough cookie? Right. But fortunately, after many attempts for cooperations with the Wikimedia movement, Schloss Caputh agreed on a first project - GLAM on Tour at Schloss Caputh. 10 Wikimedians, mainly Commons photographers, got the opportunity to take high quality pictures in the historic castle. Some of them took part in Wiki loves monuments. The results of this one saturday in September are more than presentable. Almost 80 excellent pictures were uploaded, new articles started and existing ones illustrated. See for yourself at the documentation page (which is obligatory in every GLAM on Tour station).
Discussion panel "ABC of Free Knowledge" on Open Access
On September 3, we discussed the state of Open Access publications with Lambert Heller, head of the Open Science Lab, Technische Universitätsbibliothek Hannover, Christina Riesenweber, OJS-de.net, Center for Digital Systems, Freie Universität Berlin, and Frédéric Dubois chief editor Internet Policy Review, Humboldt Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft. This was the 11th edition of WMDEs discussion panel series "ABC of Free Knowledge". Two of the main questions were, which model of open access publication is to become the standard and which one really deserves the description "open".
