Heritage GLAM 2020

WikiMedia Commons mailing list

Hello everyone,


In Punjab, India, we have been working on GLAM Wiki Project with government institutions of Punjab along with our community, a partnership we have maintained over the last year with numerous meetings with the officials.  


This year, like last year, we are putting a project grant proposed by Open Heritage Foundation in 2020 round. We have successfully completed the 2019 project and are now moving forward with the second phase of the project which has now grown in scale with a non profit that we have built and grown over the past year.

Open Heritage Foundation is a non-profit based in India that works on focussed GLAM initiatives in alignment with Wikimedia's strategic direction.


This project is a Glam wiki project centered around Community growth supported by the GLAM partnerships for content generation, Integration with Community engagement around Wikisource and Wikidata, Wikipedia integration via the new tools we are creating in this project grant and the last and one of the crucial elements of the project is improving and expanding the readership scale for Wikisource project.


We will also be supporting other Communities via our micro grants and skill sharing knowledge pool that we have collected and grown over the years.


We lack adequate sources for citations for curating local encyclopedia content. To improve that, we need projects like these to generate that data so we can document our local knowledge with adequate sources to support that work, similar to the oral wiki project idea that talks about covering the indigenous knowledge sources with non traditional sources of information and knowledge creation.


Please feel free to ask any questions if you want to understand more about the project or have any questions for more clarification.


We look forward to your feedback, advice and suggestions for improvement in the proposal. We also welcome you to join us as Advisors and collaborators to work together for the success of the project.
