Sharing and integrating digitized content[edit]

Frequently, organizations have digitized their collections, or made them available via a website, but users have trouble discovering the collection. Wikimedia communities have a lot of experience both reusing the digital collections on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects while also sharing them widely with the rest of the internet, making media easily discoverable in search and discovery tools. As institutions share collections on Flickr Commons and other websites with clear open licensing (see the definition for free cultural works which in practice, means CC BY-SA or more free), the Wikimedia community can use tools and APIs to integrate them into Wikimedia Commons for sharing and reuse across Wikimedia projects.
