Book fair[edit]

Wikimedia Sverige attended on the largest book fair in Scandinavia with almost 100 000 visitors. This was the third time we were there and we managed to have around eight volunteers every day. Over 300 pictures of writers have been uploaded and more is to come. [1] We took contact with many institutions in the GLAM sector, especially archives. The first result is that the Nordic African Institute released 65 author biographies under CC-BY-SA. [2]

Photo hunt[edit]

On the photohunt in Scania late August, 193 images has now been uploaded and 4 has so far been promoted to Quality Images. [3]
