This is the chapters report for Wikimedia Sweden July 2012.
Kulturskatter på nätet
Was translated our GLAM white paper into English, Cultural treasures on the internet which is a short handbook for GLAMs interested in making their material more easily available on the web.
We finished our report for the second quarter which gives a good summary of our avtivities from April to June.
The equipment were borrowed two times, once for the trip to Wikimania and once in the Stockholm Archipelago.
We had a first meeting with the National Archives and the National Archivist about future collaboration. They are inspired by the letter of intent that we signed with the Council of the Swedish Central Museums and are interested in doing something similar.
2 board members, 3 staff and 4 members of Wikimedia Sverige attended Wikimania. Three talks and one panel discussion were given by these.
Wikimedia Chapters Association
Wikimedia Sverige has not joined the WCA, for several reasons. It seems very unclear what the real purpose of it is and the costs associated are uncertain. The chapter will therefore wait and see what development the association takes.
