DPLA + Wikimedia: One Year In + Ten Million Views
Over the last year, DPLA has worked with eight partners, representing more than 200 contributing institutions, to add more than 1.4 million image files of photos, documents, and maps to the Wikimedia Commons digital asset management platform, resulting in more than 10 million new views of these items through inclusion on just about 1,000 Wikipedia article pages—in the first year of the project alone. In this session, we’ll discuss the work DPLA has done to give institutions a pathway to contribute assets to Wikimedia and steps DPLA hubs and institutions can take to get involved with this work, as well as how Wikimedia can be a valuable tool for exponentially increasing discovery and use of archival collections. Speakers will include Leigh Jeremias, Digital Collections Coordinator at the Colorado State Library, who coordinates the Plains to Peaks Collective; Effie Kapsalis, Senior Program Officer for Digital Strategy at the Smithsonian Institution; and DPLA Data Fellow Dominic Byrd-McDevitt.
