  • Presentació  Àlex Hinojo i  Conxa Rodà
  • Passar per sobre el projecte del British depenent del que hagi explicat el Lyam. 
  • L'objectiu és compartir l'experiència de les les institucions culturals del món real amb la l'experiència dels viquipedistes.  Podrem tenir accés als recursos de la Biblioteca Britànica, guiats per l'experiència dels seus comissaris, amb l'objectiu comú de millorar el contingut de Wikipedia amb informació rellevant a les col·leccions de la Biblioteca Britànica.
  • Els museus del comtat de Derby han unit forces amb la Viquipèdia per millorar la informació dels articles pertinents als museus i a les seves col·leccions.  Tenen molt més potencial d'arribar al seu públic des de la viquipèdia que des d'una web aïllada amb poques visites.
  • El seu objectiu és facilitar la prestació i la creació de continguts relacionats amb el Palau de Versalles en tots els projectes de Wikimedia. COMENTAR TAMBÉ EXPERIÊNCIA MUSEU DE TOULOUSSE
  • Es recomana per a exposicions amb diversos artistes de biografia poc coneguda. La feina de biografiar aquests artistes es reaprofitable a la WP
  • Museus + universitat + wikipedia =  Diversos projectes de qualitat
  • Explicar la col·laboració informal amb el Museu d'Art de Girona i amb l'etnològic, que recentment ha publicat que editarà continguts vinculats al seu camp d'acció.
  • Experts reconeguts (Harvard, Smithsonian) Treballen reaprofitant feina dels voluntaris (Wikipedistes) per a crear la major enciclopèdia d'essers vius mai imaginada.
  • Crowdsourcing és una forma d'usar un munt de gent per ajudar a completar una tasca o resoldre un problema a la web. V&A : arreglar fotos Brooklyn Museum: Curated Exhibition
  • Projecte Pan-Europeu per a fotografiar tots els BCIN  La societat s'organitza, és necessari que les administracions i les institucions donin suport. Si ets el museu d'història del teu poble i estan fent un projecte d'història al teu poble...tindràs alguna cosa a dir?
  • Sempre va bé tenir una persona a l'altre costat. Al finals les col·laboracions sempre es fan ENTRE PERSONES, sota el paraigües de les INSITUCIONS. Quan el MACBA fa una expo sobre el MAGRIS i la Viquipèdia té una entrada de 8 línies. O quan la fa de l'Olotith Group que ni tans sols té article. Monitoritzar: Avisar si hi ha algun error garrafal! CC-BY : Gencat. cat i  Informar als Viquipedistes de la Bibliografia de Referència d'un artista en concret.
  • Oportunitats per a Museus Petits: Exemple: Museu d'Art de Cerdanyola amb Togores i Ismael Smith
