The Zentralbibliothek Zürich is a public foundation and, as a university library, a scientific library. At the same time, it serves as a city and cantonal library for the provision of information to the general public. According to its statutes, it ensures, among other things, the most complete documentation and arching of published and unpublished Zurich information carriers (Turicensia).
In partnership with this GLAM institution, Wikimedia CH organized a GLAM-On-Tour from September 15th to 18th. We welcomed 23 participants, from Germany and from Switzerland. We offered an entertaining program.
During the four days, valuable contents about Zurich, it's history and buildings and also the library were added in Wikipedia. Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata. For further information about the GLAM-on-Tour event as well as the program and the results please visit the project page (in German).
Digital day @Schaffhausen Library
The 19th September, in cooperation with the libraries Schaffhausen we celebrated the Swiss Digital Days. This event was embedded in a rich, publicly accessible kaleidoscope of events, which partly only take place online, but also - like this - in presence. The proven event format of the Wiki studio is ideal for this. The main target group are archivists and librarians, but also Wikipedians and people who want to become one are welcome to the Schaffhausen City Library on this day. For further informations about this event and the results, please visite this page, to the dedicated section (in German).
