You're welcome to work on your own projects, but if you're looking for things to work on, consider adding and GLAM institutions in Wikidata as part of the FindingGLAMs Challenge.

If you'd like to participate in the Challenge, you need to enroll.

Ways to contributeEdit

  • The Monumental GLAM tool displays data about cultural heritage institutions through Wikidata, Wikipedia, and Wikimedia Commons. It allows you to browse and edit Wikidata items near your location or search for an institution by name or location. This is an easy way to find institutions. If you are adding an email address through the tool, be sure to add the prefix mailto: to avoid an error, ie.
  • Find libraries lacking an official website in using country (P17) (query can be modified for other countries): [Try it]
