Hello, you may remember the WMIT WIR at BEIC; if not, see links in
English. :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/BEIC
Last week, the 10 months collaboration came to an end; I published a
lenghty report/case study in Italian. TL;DR: free software developed, 10
BEIC staff contributing, a thousand images uploaded, 6500 usages, 400
articles created, 4 millions accesses/month.
The partnership between WMIT and BEIC will actually continue, but I'll
have a non-BEIC job at WMIT and a non-wiki job at BEIC. So I'll do
little/no editing for BEIC; probably some planning, training, uploading
and maybe coding. Maybe WMIT will keep providing BEIC a wiki editor and
invoice for it, maybe not.
I have some requests from you! I hope you can help.
1) Comments on the past months, e.g. based on the monthly updates or
2) Suggestions on what is worth translating of the report. There are
passages trying to push institutions to free software, open data, public
domain, community consultation, involvement of staff. Someone liked my
metaphor "be like mushroom, not sequoias". But maybe this is all covered
better elsewhere already?
3) Recommendations on how to update
. Should I
still be listed there, or call the WIR done? Where to record the
4) Lessons from other partnerships with institutions having an in-house
wikimedian not doing wiki work. (Other than Sannita/Luca at ICCU...)
Perhaps Scotland, Netherlands and Switzerland have more to say as AFAICT
they are all moving towards a permanent team serving multiple
institutions à la traveling WIR, like WMIT.
P.s.: Sorry for cross-posting but I think it's better than many
overlapping messages; if possible reply on each list to the parts
relevant for that list and cc only me, not all the other lists.
