On Monday 14 May, Europeana and Wikimedia host a day of free in-depth
GLAM-Wiki workshops around Wikidata, and structured data on Wikimedia
Commons, at the Europeana offices in The Hague. This day is organized in
collaboration with, and precedes the EuropeanaTech Conference 2018,
which takes place in Rotterdam 15 and 16 May.
You can find a preliminary program, and information about registration,
The EuropeanaTech conference program itself will also have a large
Wikimedia and Wikidata component :-) Maybe some of you - or GLAMs you
work with - are already planning to attend it; feel free to point people
to the Wikimedia workshops on 14 May too!
If you have any questions or remarks about the event, feel free to
contact me or Liam Wyatt (Europeana's GLAM-Wiki coordinator).
All the best! Sandra

The first conversation about structured licensing and copyright on
Commons for the Structured Data project  is available for
participation . The purpose of the discussion is to help identify the
best way to build a model for copyright information and licenses on
In this phase, we are discussing how we can approach licensing on
Commons in general. We can stay close to the current situation of
copyright templates on Commons; or we can rethink the way we treat
copyright and licenses so that we are compatible with other schemes and
systems used by other institutions; or maybe we want to have another
More detailed discussions will come later this year.
If you have experience with copyright on Commons, and have ideas on how
we can positively impact work with GLAMs in this area, please provide
feedback! Your input is crucial :-)
