L is for library - National Library of Israel Glam Wiki Project

  1. 1. L is for Library: The Wiki National Library Project Minerva 2011 16/11/11
  2. 2. Who We Are• The National Library of Israel, a 120-old institution• In charge of collecting, preserving, cultivating and endowing (or distributing) the cultural heritage of the Jewish People and Israeli State’s Citizens• 4 Main collections: Judaica, Israel, Islam & Muslim world, as well as a general humanities collection
  3. 3. Why GLAM (or: a fishing primer)• NLI intends to digitize a whole lot of ‘stuff’• Stuff = books, newspapers, personal archives, photographs, audio…• Intends to make these ‘as accessible as possible’ (we’ll get to that, later)• Want to ‘fish where the fish are’
  4. 4. What Wikipedians Need• “Better slippers”:Rare Books & Archival HistoricManuscripts Documents photographs Historic Newspapers Ephemera Maps• In our case – access to more ‘stuff’
  5. 5. Current Digital Collections
  6. 6. GLAM Wiki NLI• PjM’s rule no. 1: “Before revolutionizing – do a pilot!”• Select a collection as a pilot – Digitize… – Release under CC-BY-SA 3.0 License – Use materials to create Wikipedia articles, encourage re-use, sharing – And link back to the NLI – Enrich NL’s metadata??
  7. 7. Our Pilot • A collection of portraits of about 3,000 persons (sometimes more than one per person) • Mostly out-of-© • About 60% digitized GnessinEdward Glazer Baron Hirsch
  8. 8. What Don’t Wikiepedians Get?
  9. 9. Our Larry Abramson?
  10. 10. Excited about GLAM Wiki, yet?• Starting on December• Wikipedian-in-Residence recruited to help!• “In charge of” releasing the collection, encouraging re-use, linking back to us (and more!)• A 3-6 month timeframe
  11. 11. …The © Thing, Again• As mentioned, most of the material here is out-of- ©• Making sure © is not infringed on is hard work• Contradictory goals: – Making accessible/reusable as much as possible – Still retaining NLI “benefit of ownership”• Exactly what pilots are for!
