Launching of GLAM projects in Aurangabad


CIS-A2K has launched two new GLAM projects with institutional partners in Aurangabad. Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad Research and Training Organisation is involved in building an archive on Sayajirao Gaekwad's life achievements and the valuable reference publications facilitated by him from 1870 to 1939. On 16 December, the Wikimedia session of key persons was conducted to understand the structure of various projects, copyrights, relicensing process and digitisation. As the content is vast, phase-wise planning was done. The trustees decided to relicense and upload the books published by the organisation in the first phase. After creating the metadata and category structure, the first batch of 60 books in this archive was relicensed and uploaded here - Books published by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad Sanshodhan and Prashikshan Sanstha. read more...
