Meeting summary

The Vancouver Wikipedia Loves Libraries event occurred on Sunday, October 23, 2011. A. Kupicki, The Interior, InverseHypercube, Chellspecker, Franamax, and White Cloud 2011 attended. We spent most of our time discussing a batch upload of the Vancouver Public Library Historical Photographs Collection to Wikimedia Commons. Although we could not find any staff on-site to talk to, we realized we would need to coordinate with them at a future time for legal and technical reasons. A. Kupicki had already talked to Kate Russell—Assistant Manager of Fine Arts, History & Special Collections, and Interlibrary Loans—so we decided that TheInterior and InverseHypercube would contact her with self-introductions as our two new liasons.

We also discussed the information the library would like on the photographs, and the creation of a template. Overall, it was a productive meeting, as we set out the plan for what to do next. Thank you everyone for coming, and thank you A. Kupicki especially for organizing everything!

Since the meeting, TheInterior and InverseHypercube have contacted Kate Russell to set up a meeting, but she said she needed to discuss with some other staff first. We hope to enrich Commons's database of Vancouver archival photographs in the near future.
