This should help us build up our network of institutional partners,
particularly (but not exclusively) aimed at the World War I centenary, and
help lay the groundwork for some exciting collaboration work in the future.
Any questions, or if you'd like to express your interest in being involved
in future work on the World War I centenary, please give me a shout.
This might be a moment to go public with an idea I have been mulling over
for a couple of months, prompted by "Wiki Loves Monuments". I have this
thought that WMUK should host a "UK sites" wiki, organised around physical
"sites of cultural significance" in the UK.
I had in mind "meta for WLM", in other words a coordination wiki across all
the projects for material that can be tied in to the monument concept, and
allowing discussion of/participation by relevant institutions. E.g. if there
is a need to contact local authorities, a place to house what results, and
to point to.
The way discussion is going, expanding the scope to allow for GLAM activity
that ties into any given site looks like a good idea. "Stakeholder in the
development of heritage and educational resources" is pretty much what was
at the back of my mind.
