Cultural institutions[edit]

Say, perhaps someone around here would like to reference and expand this pitiful stub? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:57, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Not getting any help for MoU's with GLAM institutes.[edit]

I have been an active contributor to Wikipedia since 3years but a newbie to GLAM and Outreach Wikipedia programs. I have gained the idea of GLAM and Outreach programs by attending 2 national level Wikipedia conferences in this year. Now I have three long term, major projects in my hand. Now I have three collaboration project to be finalysed

1).Archaeological Survey of India. Archaeological Survey of India

2).Dharitri : Odia daily Newspaper which will help us for Odia Wikipedias Nabakalebara Editathon. Am making a draft for this in google doc : [1]

3).QRpedia and Odisha tourism : I have not drafted this but when i posted a tweet today. Here is a twitter response how Odia people from twitter are excited about it : [2]. If this project will be approved by the state government of Odisha, The QRpedia project will be a long term project and will be the first in the world where entire tourism of a state/province will be under QRpedia. But am not getting any kind of local support as our community is small and scattered and there is no follow off work to my projects from any officials as these are government institutes and a minimum MoU is required to take forward these work. I personally wants to coordinate this project but For this I have to organise more Workshops to bring contributors to Wikipedia.

But am not getting any kind of local support as our community is small and scattered and there is no follow off work to my projects from any officials as these are government institutes and a minimum MoU is required to take forward these work.

Can someone please help me how i can take a lead and complete this work. I need some

  1. Financial help
  2. Official position/something similar to this for signing the MoU's.

As of the lack of knowledge about outreach programs ( NB : came into mind after attending these programs) am unable to complete or speedup these programs. If any scope can be provided to me.

Saileshpat I know a little about how ASI works and also can say something about partnerships with organizations. Could you please email me to set up a time to talk by phone or video? I think that a voice conversation would be more efficient than starting the conversatin here. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:07, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
@Saileshpat:Also, I would recommend adding yourself to the cultural partners mailing list see instructions on outreach for joining. Sadads (talk) 02:30, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Open Arts Journal[edit]

I emailed the individual GLAM email over a week ago and haven't heard back. Looking for some advice on this:

I'm in talks with the Open Arts Journal to move from cc-by-sa-nc to cc-by-sa, partially so that we can use their work. They appear interested but don't know how they would apply the license retroactively and how to protect individual work. (My understanding is that they can't retroactively apply the license unless they contact the authors individually, but that they can change the license from this point forward.) I think it would help to pass along examples of other journals who have done the same, so I turn to you. ... Any advice on how to proceed?

Yes I think they would need authors' permission to apply it retrospectively, depending on their contracts with them - ie unless they have total control, which seems unlikely. What do you mean by "how to protect individual work"? Johnbod (talk) 03:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
Translating what they said, I think they meant that they chose "non-commercial" to protect the interests of their contributors. I know I deal with image contributors all the time with the same concerns—my usual response is that Wikipedia doesn't have commercial restrictions so it can be disseminated by any means necessary (e.g., printed and sold in a remote area without Internet). What's the standard GLAM response to people who are afraid of giving away rights? I imagine there has to be some kind of amalgam of FAQ along these lines, specifically when journals go from cc-by-sa-nc (or stricter) to cc-by-sa. At least, I would hope something exists – czar 04:17, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
