Happy New Year to you all!
We are happy to inform you all that the West Bengal Wikimedians User Group
has been announced as a partner of Wikidocumentaries project along with
different open knowledge organisations, GLAM institutes and academic
institutions of Finland. Wikidocumentaries, as you might know, is a project
by Open Knowledge Finland, which combines different aspects of a topic from
different platforms including Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons,
FlickR, Europeana, OSM etc. into one place and provides a comprehensive
display of knowledge to the readers. The link of the website is here -
You may have noticed earlier, that the West Bengal Wikimedians User Group
has engaged with the Wikidocumentaries project for more than 2 years now.
The tables listing monuments in Wiki Loves Monuments in India competition
have been providing a Wikidocumentaries links for each monuments for the
last 2 years, using which photographers can upload photographs from that
website directly into the competition. Bengali Wikisource has also provided
Wikidocumentaries links in different namespaces for more than a year now.
Wiki Loves Butterfly has very recently started to provide their links too
in their tables of butterflies.
WikidataCon 2021 also had a presentation showcasing the above
collaborations and some idea-level ambitious discussions to integrate in
more potential areas in near future. Hope this year, our partnership will
start bringing those ideas to reality.
