  8. 8. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Looking back: GLAM:s in Sweden • Hundreds of thousands of photos online • Small and big museums • Local historical societies • An absolute treasure • But... not very user friendly...
  9. 9. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Looking back (and around) • Online for years, but where on earth (not found on Google etc.)? • Different metadata (quality and quantity) • Different interfaces (usability) • Online? Yes, but don’t touch!
  10. 10. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 The big change • Social media (Wikipedia early!) > New technical platforms (new possibilities) > New participatory culture (share, contribute!) > New webservices • This has caused us to think again: I.e. Redefining the role of the institution, and... we’re all doing ”work in progress”!
  11. 11. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 The big change • Credits to: Flickr and Flickr Commons • International influence: Library of Congress, Brooklyn Museum, Powerhouse Museum, etc... • Swedish National Heritage Board
  12. 12. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Flickr and Flickr Commons • Easy to use • Not only for professionals • Full control (almost) • Creative Commons licensing • Large audience
  13. 13. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 (Old) Concerns about collections online • The photographs can be misused • Someone else can make money out of them • Remixing is distorting history • Noone will come to our museum anymore • We might be sued by the copyright holder...
  14. 14. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Unraveling the mysteries of the Copyright law (...well, try at least) • Who is the photographer? • When did he/she die? • Can the user trim the photograph (what about the moral rights)? • Is a private school = commercial use? Sweden: Is it a photographic work or an ”image”
  15. 15. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Finding help in Creative Commons • BY: Who is the photographer? • PD: When did he/she die? • ND: Can the user trim the photograph (what about the moral rights)? • NC: Is a private school = commercial use? Sweden: Is it a photographic work or an ”image”
  16. 16. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Progress? It’s all about being challenged! • Challenges help us develop • We’re letting go of control • We have to ask ourselves what we’re doing By Wonderlane, http://www.flickr.com/photos/wonderlane/276898561/
  17. 17. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 In early 2009: – Help, they’re using our images! Wikipedia gives Stockholm Transport Museum (and the rest of us) a wake-up call
  18. 18. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010
  19. 19. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 This was in early 2009... ...so what has happened since then?

  22. 22. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Earlier this week: Nordiska museet and Wikimedia Sweden announced a long term collaboration

  25. 25. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Some visions – where do we go from here? • We need to use other platforms • We need to listen to our users • We need to solve copyright issues • We need to be ready for change, be flexible • ...and Wikipedia is one very interesting way for us to take a step forward with our online presence
  26. 26. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Advantages • With Wikipedia we can reach out to a very large audience • Wikipedians are active and demanding users, this is challenging in a good way • On Wikipedia we get to see the interaction with our collections (how are collections being used?) • We can interact with target groups, using Wiki- pedia as a tool (challenges, collaboration etc.)
  27. 27. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 Some questions • How do we work on a long term basis with a non profit organization (volunteers)? • Can Wikipedia mobilize enough resources (people) to meet our demands? • How do we meet the requests from the Wikipedi- ans (f.ex. about metadata, formats) • It’s not that easy to upload images...
  28. 28. Kajsa Hartig, Nordiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden,/GLAM-Wiki UK, November 27 2010 We will see more of Wikipedia + GLAM... ...so, it’s necessary to share our experiences and facilitate further collaboration. Perhaps through annual #glamwiki events?
