Transcript

  • 1. The anatomy of a 100,000 image cooperation German Federal Archives, Wikipedia and the greater picture Mathias Schindler Wikimedia Germany e.V. GLAM-Wiki August 6th, 2009 Australian War Memorial Canberra
  • 2. Wikimedia Germany http://www.wikimedia.de • Registered Association under German Civil Law • Founded in 2004 • Approved as a charitable organisation • Money comes almost exclusively from donations • Does not run the German language Wikipedia • 8 full time employees, 2 student trainees • http://www.wikimedia.de
  • 3. Bundesarchiv http://www.bundesarchiv.de • higher federal authority • Purpose: to permanently collect and keep archive material and to make it usable for scientific purposesI • Operating under the Federal Archive Act of 1988 • Currently owns about 10 million images, many of them not yet digitalized
  • 4. Cooperation • In 2007, the Bundesarchiv started its online image repository • It was possible to look at thumbnails, everything else was to be paid for • No freely licensed material • So we wrote a friendly email... • 12 months of negotiation later, a contract between the Bundesarchiv and Wikimedia Germany was signed
  • 5. Terms of the Agreement • The Bundesarchiv is providing Wikimedia with images under Creative Commons (by-sa) • The images are usually scaled down • The minimum size is currently 800px on the larger side • Wikimedia in return is going to help match person authority file records between – Wikipedia – Bundesarchiv – German National Library (PND)
  • 6. Status • Matching status completed after 3 months • Feedback from the Wikipedia community was extremely positive • Images were integrated into Wikipedia almost instantly • Limitation to 800px is currently considered to be acceptable • Feedback to the Bundesarchive was positive as well, their traffic is now at all-time highs
  • 7. Feedback
  • 8. Matching Authority File Records
  • 9. Matching Authority File Records
  • 10. Matching Authority File Records
  • 11. Matching Authority File Records
  • 12. Matching Authority File Records
  • 13. Wikipedia as a starting point
  • 14. Referencing the Source
  • 15. German National Library
  • 16. VIAF.org
  • 17. A network of authority
  • 18. Bi-directional linking
  • 19. Bi-directional linking
  • 20. Ongoing Efforts • We are looking for more archives who are willing to enter such a cooperation • We are also trying to get access to bibliographic databases and authority files to improve our ability for these matching processes • On March 31st, we signed a new cooperation agreement with the State and University Library of Saxony with similar parameters • In the very long run, we anticipate this model to be attractive even for more commercially oriented image archives
  • 21. Thank you Mathias Schindler Wikimedia Deutschland mathias.schindler@wikimedia.de
