What problem does this solve?[edit]

Uploading/releasing images from current exhibits into Wikimedia Commons so they are readily available digitally and when archivists and curators are working with these materials already.

What is the solution?[edit]

Things to consider[edit]

  • Timing of exhibition openings
  • Building relationships with curators and archivists to plan image uploads as a part of the pre-exhibit workflow
  • Managing the batch upload and tracking metrics to report back to museum / unit

When to use[edit]

  • Narrowing the focus of image releases for a museum/unit around a prioritized topic or event, like a new exhibit opening
