This is the first ever Wikimedian in Residence in Scotland and offers an excellent opportunity for a Wikimedian to help the Library explore how its collections and knowledge can be used to broaden content on Wikipedia and its sister projects, such as Wikimedia Commons. It is also Wikimedia UK’s first large-scale partnership with a Scottish institution. The successful applicant will also undertake outreach work to encourage understanding and development of Wikimedia projects.
The residency will last for four months and will be based at the Library in Edinburgh. It is jointly funded by Wikimedia UK and the National Library of Scotland.
