Armenia report: Workshop with GLAM representatives[edit]

By Khazhak Drampyan (Wikimedia Armenia)

Representatives of 11 museums were present at the meeting held on April 4 in Wikimedia Armenia office. The aim of the meeting was to teach representatives from GLAM institutions how to use Wikimedia projects.

Participants learned Wikipedia's key principles and rules, how to edit articles and upload files to Wikimedia Commons. Special reference was made to which files can be uploaded to Commons and which cannot. Copyright issues and other legal aspects were also discussed. The participants got acquainted with the structure of Wikipedia article and Wikipedia tools. Some of the participants uploaded files and edited at the workshop.

At the end of the meeting it was decided to open a working group on Facebook to discuss ongoing questions and handle communication more efficiently.

Those participants who did not attend, will participate in Saturday workshop and learn everything covered during this April 4 workshop.
