On Friday August 25th 2017, the University of Melbourne community came together as part of [email protected] Week to improve the representation of women researchers on Wikipedia.
The day started with a well-researched keynote address from Provost Margaret Shiel, AO. The program was well-organised by a team made up of library staff with support from the National Foundation for Australian Women, the School of Historical Studies and the University's eScholarship Research Centre. Two streams of workshops catered for both new and experienced Wikipedians, and participants had access to cheat sheets, suggested subjects to edit and related reference sources, as well as all-day refreshments. The event booked out.
As well as the new editor signups, articles and categories created and content edited, the organising team are to be congratulated on the following achievements:
motivating 40 people over two locations to spend their day learning about, and editing Wikipedia
winning an interview spot about the edit-a-thon on Melbourne radio 3CR
generating activity on the two event hashtags #UoMwiki and #HERsUoM
establishing an ongoing University of Melbourne wiki community of practice which has met again since the edit-a-thon
Australian Women's Register on Wikidata
The University of Melbourne is a partner in the Australian Women's Archive Project established in 2000. Their Australian Women’s Register was one of the online sources used at the University of Melbourne edit-a-thon. This was an obvious dataset for Wikidata, and thanks to Toby Hudson the Australia Women's Register is now available for matching at https://tools.wmflabs.org/mix-n-match/#/catalog/534
The Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil and the Brazilian National Archives launched a GLAM initiative in mid October, and this initiative has sparked the creation of a cross-wiki project to bring content onto Wikimedia projects, mostly but not exclusively in Portuguese. The goal of the GLAM initiative is to upload onto Wikimedia Commons as much relevant content from the Brazilian National Archives – a public organization in Rio de Janeiro linked to the Ministry of Justice and responsible for carrying for all public documents in Brazil since the early 19th century – as possible.
A pilot upload in October has already brought to the Commons 523 items, including historical photographs and documents. The use rate of images has reached 75% in October.
Relevant links to this initiative are:

Building a cross-wiki project
The Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil has coordinated volunteers in four Wikimedia projects in order to best make use of relevant content from the GLAM initiative with the Brazilian National Archives: Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia, Wikisource and Wikidata. A cross-wiki project page has been created on Wikipedia in Portuguese to advertise achievements of the broad community effort to bring content of the National Archives onto Wikimedia projects. Editors who are not members of the user group are of course welcome to team up in the project!
Examples of activities done in the context of this cross-wiki GLAM initiative include:
Category curation on files uploaded to Wikimedia Commons;
Site and people identification on files uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. After identification, images were cropped and individually used to illustrate entries;
Transcription of historical documents on Wikisource;
Content improvement on Wikipedia in Portuguese and other languages;
Content improvement on Wikidata.
As the team was dealing with several projects in the context of this GLAM initiative, efforts to integrate projects were made, including:
The development of Merge2PDF, a tool to compile individual pages of a document into a single file. Compiled versions have been linked to Wikidata entries, i.e. on the entry on AI-4, and to infoboxes on Wikipedia in Portuguese, i.e. on the entry on AI-4;
The development of a Wikidata-fed infobox to Wikipedia in Portuguese, specifically for documents and archives. This infobox contributes to integrating to Commons and Wikisource, i.e. on the entry on AI-2;
The systematic including of cross-project tags on entries on Wikipedia in Portuguese, especially Wikisource and Wikimedia Commons, for instance at the bottom of Constituição brasileira de 1891.
These are some images that were uploaded in the pilot of the Brazilian National Archives GLAM initiative. A complete and up-to-date list can be found in the relevant Commons category.

Training and editathon on 18 October 2017
The small Bulgarian town and municipal centre Botevgrad accepted the challenge and responsibility to become the first wikitown in Bulgaria. The innovative project is a result of a collaboration between the Botevgrad Municipality and a group of Bulgarian Wikimedians, and it aims at the improvement of the Wikipedia articles about the town and the region for the benefit of both its citizens and guests. More and well written and referenced information will appear onwiki for the notable cultural and natural sites, historical places and renowned people related to Botevgrad and the nearby villages.
Although "WikiBotevgrad" is the first project of its kind in Bulgaria, the practice of estabilishing wikitowns is not so new in the wiki world. The first wikitown was Monmouth in Wales in May 2012, and since then other towns like Gibraltar, Johannesburg, and Thessaloniki in CEE have implemented similar projects together with the local wiki communities. While it is an almost zero-cost project, volunteering unites the local communities, creates new relations and helps people build stronger connections between themselves and with their homeplaces. The newly created and improved articles in Wikipedia as a result turn into a reliable and curated source of information.
"I hope that we will serve as a positive example to other progressive municipalities in Bulgaria. The wikitown initiative requires the collaborative work of citizens and instituions, young and elder ones, professionals and enthusiasts. What unites us is the love to our home town, and I hope that as a result of this project we will have a stronger feeling of a healthier community," said Botevgrad's mayor, Mr. Ivan Gavalyugov.
The project of the first Bulgarian wikitown involves creation or improvement of about 150 articles, as well as adding freely licensed photos for illustration. Information plates with QR codes will be placed in relevant places, to forward the readers to the respective articles in Wikipedia in Bulgarian or English. Deeply involved in the organization are not only several Wikimedians, but also the staff of Botevgrad's GLAM institutions: the library and the museum, as well as librarians from the nearby villages in Botevgrad Municipality.
A series of events has been planned in the frames of the project "Botevgrad - the First Wikitown in Bulgaria". Two of them already took place on 11 and 18 October in the "Ivan Vazov" Town Library: a presentation of the project, and a practical training and editathon. One of the first created articles within the project was the article about the Historical Museum in Botevgrad, immediately illustrated with a photo that had existed in Wikimedia Commons for more than 4 years before that. The planned duration of the project is at least until May 2018.
Wiki Loves Monuments
In 2017 was the 7th edition of Wiki Loves Monuments in France and the dynamic is still very strong. 9501 photos have been uploaded by 358 contributors, 61% of them being new contributors. After 4 years of decline, the figures are going up again: +23% of images and +19% of participants.
