Some of you may recollect the Med GLAM Project that we proposed
during this year's work plan . The main objective of this project
is to create, curate and make openly available images from the
Department of Pathology (DoP), Calicut Medical College (CMC) for the
benefit of medical and para-medical students specifically and for
the larger medical fraternity across the world.
I am glad to inform you that this project has kick-started in
October 2014 and is gaining momentum. Our very own Netha Hussain, is
the Wikipedian-in-Residence for this project.
Dr. K.P. Aravindan, Head of DoP, CMC and Netha Hussain have played a
pivotal role in putting this project together and successfully
partnering with the CMC. So far 146 images are uploaded on the
Commons under the project and are available here . Most of the
credit goes to Netha for this successful Med-GLAM project in
Help and support, especially from Wikimedians with Pathology
background, is welcome in writing descriptions for the images
uploaded, categorizing them and reviewing the quality of images.
Wikimedians in Kerala may also reach out to Netha to help organize
events in and around CMC about this project.
