Estonia report: Networking with the GLAMs[edit]

By Reosarevok
Nelijärve, only without the gloomy November weather.

On the 21st and 22nd of November a digital preservation seminar took place in Nelijärve, northern Estonia, organized by the National Library of Estonia and with the presence of preservation experts from the Ministry of Culture, the National Archives and several large GLAM institutions. Wikimedia Eesti was represented by Reosarevok and Puik. During the seminar we briefly showcased our Wikidata projects based on GLAM data, held discussions with representatives from different institutions about future cooperation which should see more GLAM content arrive to both Wikidata and Commons, and brought up the possibility of Estonian institutions using an editing-restricted Wikibase instance for their own shared termbase.

Additionally, Puik represented us at the GLAM Meeting in Tel Aviv - for some info about that, check the next Estonia GLAM newsletter!
