What problem does this solve?
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?
Things to consider
- 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
- Narrowing the focus of image releases for a museum/unit around a prioritized topic or event, like a new exhibit opening
