Wikimedia Sveriges chapters report for May, June and July 2009.

Chapters meeting[edit]

Three board members attended the chapters meeting and another three members on the developers meetup. I gave us a lot of inspiration and energy. Thanks to WMDE for a great event and to all attendees for being so great!

Wikipedia Academy[edit]

Our chairman, Lennart Guldbrandsson attended the Wikipedia Academy in USA. He was cited in Wikipedia Signpost. [1] The cooperation with NIH has reached Swedish media.[2]


THe NPG has reached Swedish media, mainly translating English media. [3]

On a more positive note we have several good contacts with different institutions and we can hopefully soon announce the first donation of pictures to WMSE.

Board meetings[edit]

We had two board meetings this period and both minutes are online in Swedish. [4][5]

University course[edit]

This fall the first University course in Wikipedia will start (7,5 ECTS credits).[6] WMSE is not directly involved doing this, but we support it and a member is the teacher and as litterature Lennart's book wmse:Så fungerar Wikipedia (How Wikipedia works) will be used.

Seminars and conferences[edit]

We have held two talks about what Wikipedia is, for Swedish tourist journalists and secondary upper class teachers.
