Since Wikimania DC, GLAM activities have grown and widened in many aspects, including increased incorporation of scientific matters. The aim of this session is to review activities around Science GLAM, and to discuss how to move forward on that basis.
- Detailed proposal
This contribution is composed of two parts - a presentation on a collaboration of Wikimédia France with the Museum of natural history of Toulouse, and another one on Science GLAM more broadly. This combination worked fine at GLAM Wiki UK, so we submitted together this time.
- Part I is about Projet Phoebus: How a museum from a regional town in France won the Picture of the Year 2012 on Wikimedia Commons
- Early 2013, the picture of the year 2012 contest was won by a curator of the Museum of natural history of Toulouse. He started contributing his pictures after the museum started the Projet phoebus which intends to share content on Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia.
In Part II (which could be given first, if that makes sense in the context of neighbouring time slots), an overview will be given on scientific components within GLAM activities worldwide, including
- Wikimedian in Residence in the Natural History Museum and Science Museum, London (see also Submissions/Wikimedian Residency at the Natural History Museum and Science Museum, London)
- Zoo Sofia
- Botanical Gardens Neuchâtel, Montréal, Graz
- Naturkundemuseum Berlin
- La Plata Museum
- Phyletisches Museum Jena
- Science components of Tartupedia
- Wikimedia chapters as partners in research projects
- some additional notes are in User:Daniel Mietchen/Science GLAM
- Cultural and Educational Outreach
- Length of presentation/talk
- ~60 Minutes (could be split into the two parts if really necessary)
- Language of presentation/talk
