Wikipedia for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museum @ Malaysia Design Archive
On 15 September 2018, Wikimedia Malaysia, under the official Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia (WCUGM), held a Wikipedia meetup for the very first time in an archive entitled Wikipedia for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museum under its Wikipedia Kuala Lumpur Meetup 5 official name at the Malaysia Design Archive. Representative of several galleries from around Kuala Lumpur participated in the meetup. The meetup was mostly about the presentation about Wikipedia and the Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museum (GLAM) movement.
User MYMMMC opened up the meetup with a set of presentation slide show on Wikipedia and its relation to the GLAM-related affairs. The presentation included the background and introduction of Wikipedia, general problems faced in the Wikimedia movement, collaboration with the GLAM institutions in other countries, importance of Wikipedia as the digital archive etc. Dody Ismoyo then continued with the demonstration on the creation of a Wikipedia article on the venue itself, the Malaysia Design Archive, and its other related Wikimedia projects, such as the photo uploads in Wikimedia Commons and its Creative Commons laws as well as the detail listing in its Wikidata page.
Various discussion was held with the participants after the presentation on the collaboration with their activities in which they hoped the user group can take part in it.
