We encourage each and everyone of you to create a program submission. You can submit an interactive workshop or panel, a lecture, a short lighting talk or a poster for our dedicated poster session. Submissions are catered to both onsite and online (live or pre-recorded) or a hybrid combination. We at the Core Organizing Team would like to see a program submission related to GLAM, Heritage and Culture.
The theme for this year's Wikimania is Diversity, Collaboration, Future. Topics that strengthen collaboration on GLAM activities and projects are topics we like to see this year. It is great way to see participants collaborate with each other. There is also a spacious Wikimania Expo space where achievements on GLAM can be exhibited. We also secured partnership with the National Library of Singapore and we see this an opportunity for GLAM enthusiasts to also do a showcase and interact with cultural institutions in Singapore.
For participants joining virtually, we also have allocated online hours for you too to allow you to participate & present.
Session submissions for Wikimania 2023 are open until 28 March.

We are looking to join the GLAM Wiki community and would love to set up a page to share some of our archival and eventually curatorial collections. We are looking for information on how to partner with Wiki to get a page setup.

The March 2023 Working Hour will feature a presentation by Ross Spencer of Siegfried
Using a custom Wikibase with Siegfried
In 2020 Ross Spencer worked alongside the team at Yale University Library (Dr Kat Thornton, Euan Cochran) and Siegfried Developer Richard Lehane to develop an integration for the popular file format identification tool, and Wikidata. The work has also been expanded with a little careful configuration to enable the integration to work with custom Wikibases as well. In this LD4 Wikibase working hour Ross will describe the Siegfried/Wikidata/Wikibase integration in more detail; engagement between the digital preservation and wikidata community; and the benefits he sees in this work for the discipline. Ross is happy to field all and any questions about the work and is especially happy to receive questions in advance if there is anything specific anyone would like to see covered.
Ross Spencer (He/Him/They) (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5144-9794) is a part-time open source software developer, and full-time digital preservation specialist at Ravensburger AG based in Germany.

Resource Sharing Librarian
Dear GLAM enthusiasts,
We want to learn about the work you've done to advocate for copyright reform.
What: The Foundation is mapping the copyright advocacy work that Wikimedians have conducted since roughly 2016. We are specifically looking for initiatives that have targeted government policies on copyright.
Why: This project will help us learn about our movement’s shared copyright public policy priorities, the common obstacles that communities face, and the campaign materials (as well as other resources) that Wikimedians have created or are creating as part of these advocacy efforts.
If you have been involved in such an initiative, or know someone else who has, please let us know!
Send an email with the subject “Copyright advocacy mapping” to Valentina Vera-Quiroz (vveraquiroz-ctr(a)wikimedia.org) and CC me (fputz(a)wikimedia.org) Let us know the time zone in which you are based. We will schedule a time to talk. More information about the project and what we will do with these insights can be found in this blog post: <https://diff.wikimedia.org/2023/03/02/help-wikimedia-map-your-efforts-to-im…>
Hope to hear from you,
Ziski, on behalf of WMF Global Advocacy
