Introducing the GLAMwiki Toolset, the first standardised, mass-upload system for Wikimedia Commons. Learn how to use this powerful tool designed specifically to assist GLAMs to get their multimedia exposed to the widest possible audience - on Wikipedia Articles.

Detailed proposal

This presentation will not be an in-depth or "practical" session to undertake your own upload. It will however give the attendees the understanding of what they need to do to use the tool.
Further to the above, this presentation will also include a explanation of the "GWT v.2" development work that will (funding pending) be beginning soon. This is an excellent opportunity for new GWT users to share their thoughts on how the system could be improved.

  • Exposure
Length of presentation/talk
25 Minutes (Longer is, of course, possible but this would be the minimum)
Target audience
GLAMs and Wikimedians who have a middle-level technical knowledge - specifically they know how to export a dataset from their collection.
Expected outcomes
Awareness of, and interest in, using the GLAMwiki Toolset for sharing content to Wikimedia Commons
