Every year during the Northern summer holidays, approximately 1,000 members of the Wikimedia community – the worldwide group of volunteers and professionals behind projects including Wikipedia and Wikidata – gather for their annual event: Wikimania. This year’s event, hosted in Stockholm, had as its theme the relationship of open-access information to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The event's program was chaired for the second year running by Europeana’s own Wikimedia liaison Liam Wyatt, in a voluntary capacity. Today he fills us in on this year’s gathering.
Aggregators are the key link between Europeana and cultural heritage institutions across Europe. We have brought together our extensive experience of holding training events to develop a Playbook that will support best practice in workshop delivery. This will contribute towards our ultimate goal of encouraging more CHIs across Europe to provide relevant, high quality and open data to Europeana.
