Wikimedians in Residence
Wikimedians in Residence in Scotland
Scotland’s Wikimedians in Residence have held positions at various organisations including the National Library of Scotland, Museums Galleries Scotland and the Devil’s Porridge Museum. Each Residency is unique, but bound by a common thread: to work as a bridge between the institution and the Wikimedia community. Residents can provide training to staff, students, volunteers and the public; help to change policy; advocate for the adoption of open practices, and help to bring a global audience to the work of an institution.
If you’re interested in hosting a Wikimedian in Residence, Wikimedia UK can help to shape your project, including giving advice on finding funding, the right candidate, and role descriptions. We recommend that you take a look at our report on the impact that a Resident can have. If you have any questions, please do get in contact: email@example.com
