Greetings from GLAM-Wiki US[edit]

Invitation to join GLAM-Wiki US
tight

Hello! This WikiProject aligns closely with the work of the GLAM-Wiki initiative (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums), a global community of volunteers who assist cultural institutions with sharing resources with Wikimedia. GLAM-Wiki US is a new community initiative focused on organizing cultural collaborations within the United States. GLAM organizations are diverse and span numerous topics, from libraries and art museums to science centers and historic sites. We currently have a backlog of interested institutions- and we need your help!

We hope you'll join the growing GLAM-Wiki community in the US. Thank you!

Categories and templates[edit]

Hello I have been operating on Historical fiction, space opera, military science fiction, fantasy fiction these past years. My main concern is since many of those categories are very good... lists of pieces of art, I think and ask: can templates be implemented in some way in categories and vice versa? I found this problem and concern that when I tried merging space opera and military science fiction with list of list of space opera media and list of military science fiction. Many editors opposed and reverted, while actually these categories serve as wonderful lists of historical and fantasy things and can coexist positively with templates and can light off wikipedia of many unused lists.

Thanks and kindest regards:
