Józef Piłsudski Institute of America Begins Wikipedia Project
This February, the Józef Piłsudski Institute of America has begun an exciting GLAM-Wikipedia Project. The Institute has recently created a volunteer Wikipedian-in-Residence position, which will be filled by Piotr Puchalski.
The Institute has already begun a large scale image donation project - publishing over 500 scans of letters, documents, and personal papers from their archives onto Wikimedia Commons, and plans to upload several thousand more documents and some photographs in the coming months. Piotr and others at the Institute will be editing Wikipedia articles in both English and Polish. We look forward to seeing their work progress..
Pages Added for our Propose-an-Article Project
Three articles were added as a result of collaborations between METRO and the Frick Art Reference Library and Frick Collection for METRO's Propose a Wikipedia Article Project. Submission is still open. Contact us if you're interested!
