This project is now complete. Please view the video (left) browse the report (right) or these pages to learn more. The project led to the county-wide Yorkshire Network Project.
Staff of YMT have informally continued this project beyond its end-date. For detail see Legacy projects.
The trust has artifacts, collections and expertise that are important to the city, the region and the world. The project aims to provide opportunities to improve the Wikipedia content related to each of these.
The trust has a fantastic collection of curatorial and educational images. Many of these may be licensed appropriately for Wikimedia Commons. Further, there are existing images on Commons and across the web that may be enfolded into the project.
A key test collection for the project is material related to Tempest Anderson. In particular, YMT is providing hi-resolution scans of c.250 images from Anderson's unique photographic collection.
Public and internal events are being run throughout the residency.
There is a plan to fill a display case in the foyer of the Yorkshire Museum with various items from the collection, labelled and explained. These will be linked with QRpedia and a general explanation of the WiR project will be attached.
For some introductory information, these two are great:
