Wikimedia Sverige is proud to be the recipient of $324,500 in support from
the Swedish Postcode Foundation for our project FindingGLAMs
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FindingGLAMs>.

We will work in collaboration with UNESCO and the Wikimedia Foundation to
achieve a number of ambitious goals over the 15 month long project. We will
work to:

- Collect and include data about GLAM[1] institutions around the world
on Wikidata (e.g. where they are located). This will be done both through a
campaign and from batch uploads of datasets;
- Batch upload collections of media files, in collaboration with the
Structured Data on Commons program;
- Organize networks of experts to discuss issues with disseminating
different types of material through the Wikimedia projects;
- Create a white paper consisting of a number of case studies based on
the work and discussions outlined above;
- Communicate about the Wikimedia movement’s work with GLAMs at
conferences;
- Organize a number of activities both on- and offline to use the
material. This include some work around Wikimania 2019 that will take place
in Stockholm, Sweden.

We hope many of you would like to get involved in the project and work with
us to connect to GLAM partners in your countries. At this point we are
looking for your help to identify institutions that maintain lists of GLAM
institutions (similar to the collection of monuments lists for WLM) and
later to identify GLAM institutions with specific types of collections that
would like to work with the Wikimedia movement.

Please contact the project manager John Andersson (
***@wikimedia.se) if you have any questions. If you are
interested to take part, please sign up on the project portal at Meta:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FindingGLAMs

As always, you can find the full application on our wiki (in Swedish):
https://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Projekt:FindingGLAMs_2018/Ansökan

[1] GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums.

We look forward working with you!

Best regards,

John
