2013 Activity Plan/GLAM Scotland

From Wikimedia UK
Jump to: navigation, search
Description

We have strong hopes of continuing this work despite delays to implementation in 2012-13. There have been serious delays owing to re-organisations in the Scottish GLAM sector and people changing responsibilities - the planned year long Wikimedian in Residence has not been established.

We will fund a position to work with the Scottish cultural sector to develop links with the Wikipedian community in Scotland and its projects. This has been realised by placing a WiR at the National Library of Scotland - the project plan of this residency can be found here.

Amount

£21,000

Timetable for activities

November 2012 - Spring 2013: basing on the Wikimedian in Residence recruitment grant, assessing if any of the institutions are based in Scotland.

July 2013 - Spring 2014: residency at the National Library of Scotland, tie in with further community events as emerging.

Success Criteria
  • WiR appointed and active with a Scottish host.
  • That a clear programme of activities is established and delivered in consultation with their hosts, reaching out to the wider Wikimedia community in Scotland.
  • WIR reports regularly about their activities.
Risks
  • Delays continue and post is not created.
  • WIR, if placed, is unable to bridge their host community, the Wikimedia UK community and the general population.
