What problem does this solve?Edit

Uploading/releasing images from current exhibits into Wikimedia Commons so they are readily available digitally and when archivists and curators are working with these materials already.

What is the solution?Edit

Things to considerEdit

  • Timing of exhibition openings
  • Building relationships with curators and archivists to plan image uploads as a part of the pre-exhibit workflow
  • Managing the batch upload and tracking metrics to report back to museum / unit

When to useEdit

  • Narrowing the focus of image releases for a museum/unit around a prioritized topic or event, like a new exhibit opening
