You're welcome to work on your own projects, but if you're looking for things to work on, consider adding and GLAM institutions. The FindingGLAMs challenge has ended, but it has some helpful ways to get started here.

FindingGLAMs Challenge DocumentationEdit

The FindingGLAMs Challenge is over, but there are links to helpful property dashboards for different types of GLAM institutions in the documentation under the "Overview of GLAMs by country" section.

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. mailto:info@example.org
  • Find libraries lacking an official website in using country (P17) (query can be modified for other countries): [Try it]
