Wikimedian-in-Residence — Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MANU)
Logo of MANU The Wikimedian-in-Residence at the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MANU or MASA) was appointed in October 2015 to work in the Lexicographic Department and the MANU Library to improve the presence of archival heritage of Macedonia on Wikipedia and its sister projects. This is achieved by scanning and processing the material, uploading it on Wikimedia Commons, describing, collecting and sorting it, and ultimately, using it in existing articles or creating new articles inspired by the material in question.

Beginning with 1 October 2015, this position is held by Mario Šarevski (user Македонец), after an agreement was signed between the Academy and Shared Knowledge.
