Gallery pages is another way to represent library and collections on Wikimedia projects and on web generally. The human mind tends to perceive information in images [citation needed] and for come users the visual form of interaction may be more comfortable than reading. On Wikimedia Commons we can give a sample or overview of all the media on a given notable topic. And library-related topics suggest themselves to do that. Benefits and disadvantages of galleries over categories will be explained.


Expected outcomes[edit]

  • understanding of gallery pages on Wikimedia Commons
  • explaining how gallery pages are created
  • applying knowledge by creating or editing gallery pages
