[Wikimedia-l] Changes in Board Wikimedia Nederland

2020-04-29 Thread Sandra Rientjes - Wikimedia Nederland
On behalf of the Board of Wikimedia Nederland, I would like to inform you
of some changes in the board.


As of April 16, Frans Grijzenhout, chairman, and Marike van Roon, board
member for cultural cooperation and partnerships, stepped down from the
board after years of dedicated service. The board elected Jan Bart de
Vreede as its new chair.

Frans was elected to the board of Wikimedia Nederland in 2012 and became
chair in 2014. The contribution he has made over the past eight years can
only be described as impressive. He played a crucial role in building the
office and developing a wide programme of activities in support of free
knowledge.  Frans was also active internationally: he was a driving force
behind the development of governance training for new board members, and
the regular meetings of chapter chairs.  Over the past years, many Wikimedians
have met him at Wikimania or the Wikimedia Summit. Wikimedia Nederland is
very grateful that Frans is willing to continue to share his experience and
expertise as an advisor to the board.

Marike van Roon joined the board in 2015. As an art historian and curator -
and an active Wikipedia editor - she made a major contribution to the
development of the GLAM program of Wikimedia Nederland. Like no other she
was able to make connections between the Wikimedia projects and the digital
heritage strategies of Dutch institutions, thanks to her experience and
networks in the museum and library sector.

The intention had been that members of Wikimedia Nederland and the wider
Dutch wiki-community would say goodbye to Frans and Marike in an
appropriate way, and thank them for their dedicated service, during the
General Assembly planned for April 18. Because of the measures to combat
the spread of COVID-19 this was not possible - but we hope to make up for
it at the General Assembly this autumn.

At its meeting on April 16, the board of Wikimedia Nederland elected Jan
Bart de Vreede as the new chair.  New board members will be elected at the
General Assembly in September.

With warm regards,

Sandra Rientjes
Directeur/Executive Director Wikimedia Nederland

I agree with Chris.
Furthermore: Wikimedia Nederland, like all chapters, puts a lot of effort
in raising awareness of and support for the Wikimedia projects.  I would
really like to know if these efforts 'pay off'.

[Wikimedia-l] sensory overload/wikimedia events

2019-02-27 Thread Sandra Rientjes - Wikimedia Nederland
*There now is a learning pattern

with
suggestions on how to prevent sensory overload at Wikimedia events.*

Last year, there was a short discussion
on
wikimedia-l concerning sensory overload.  Sensory overload occurs when
somebody experiences over-stimulation from the environment: loud noise,
several people talking at once, crowded or cluttered spaces, flashing
lights.


People who are susceptible to sensory overload can experience upsetting
symptoms such as "shutting down" or getting overexcited, difficulty
focusing and concentrating, irritability, sleeplessness and fatigue.


Over the past year, Wikimedia Nederland has been gathering suggestions

on how to make Wikimedia events comfortable places to be for people who are
susceptible to sensory overload.


The results can be found in a learning pattern

on Meta. We hope this is useful for everyone organising events.

Dear Erik,

Many thanks for all the help and support you gave Wikimedia Nederland and
myself over the past years. Whenever we had tricky stats-related questions,
we knew we could turn to you.

I hope to see you at many WMNL-events in the future.

Enjoy the freedom!

Best,

Sandra

Re: [Wikimedia-l] October 12: Strategy update - Movement direction now posted for your endorsement consideration (#26)

2017-10-21 Thread Sandra Rientjes - Wikimedia Nederland
Hi Ziko,

Just a quick reaction to the last sentence of your message where you
express your concern about oral traditions as a source and say 'Guillaume
emphasized that he still wants to go this way.'

To some, this could give the impression that Guillaume is responsible for
what went in the text and what did not.  As Katherine mentioned in her
message, drafting the strategic direction was a group process. (FYI, I was
part of that group)  Guillaume had the unenviable task of making sense of
all the suggestions, input and comments, and produce meaningful and
readable text.  Frankly, I don't know anyone who could have done that job
better. So, it is not so much that 'Guillaume still wants to go this way',
but rather 'the drafting group believes the movement-wide consultation
points this way.'

I understand your concerns - and I know that they come from your deep
commitment to the quality and the reliability of the Wikimedia projects.
Your comments have already started some interesting discussions - on this
list and in other places - about how oral traditions/sources could and
should be used in a responsible way.

Best regards,


Sandra Rientjes
Directeur/Executive Director Wikimedia Nederland

Re: [Wikimedia-l] US Copyright Law Forces Wikimedia to remove Public Domain Anne Frank Diary

2016-02-16 Thread Sandra Rientjes - Wikimedia Nederland
I think you raise a very good point, Jonathan.  Anne Frank's diary is not
just any book.

Paradoxically, the very fact that this is a special book by a special
author is also the reason why many people - especially in the Netherlands -
are uncomfortable about the recent and unexpected introduction of the
possibility that there is a co-author.

Definitely, this is a very sensitive issue and Wikimedia Nederland is
proceeding very, very cautiously.  No-one should play copyright games with
Anne Frank's diary.

(For those interested, ENWP has good information on the copyright issues:

I may have an unpopular view here, but when an author has been murdered,
especially one so young, I find it distasteful to try to make that a test
case re copyright. If Anne Frank hadn't been murdered she might well still
be alive today, and presumably her work would still be in copyright.

By all means we should be encouraging people to freely license things
openly, and arguing for open licensing against those who claim copyright on
faithful copies of out of copyright work, and for freedom of panorama in
countries less open about such things than Armenia or the UK.

I'm sort of OK about as Michael Maggs put it  using it to "increase
awareness of the excessive length (95 years) of some US copyright terms."
Though I'd hope there are other examples where we don't look like taking
advantage of the murder of a child. I'm also OK with using this as an
example of us taking copyright seriously.

But though it is an important work, is it really one we should be trying to
force into the open against the wishes of a charity set up by her relatives?

Regards

Jonathan/WereSpielChequers

Re: [Wikimedia-l] US Copyright Law Forces Wikimedia to remove Public Domain Anne Frank Diary

2016-02-16 Thread Sandra Rientjes - Wikimedia Nederland
The situation concerning the copyright on Anne Frank's writings is quite
complex - and it is not just US copyright which is causing problems.

There appears to be some consensus that the Dutch text of the diary as
first published in 1947 is now in the public domain in the Netherlands. But
writings by Anne first published in 1986 remain under copyright until 2036.

However, the current holder of the copyright, the Anne Frank Fund in
Switzerland, is claiming that  Anne's father should be considered a
co-author of the original diary. This would extend copyright until 2050, 70
years after his death. Some experts in copyright-law feel this could be a
valid argument, but the claim has sofar not been confirmed by any court.
Experts on the writings of Anne Frank tend to dismiss it. Still, the
 National Library of the Netherlands has already removed the text of the
diary from their digital library
 at the request of the Anne
Frank Fund.

Wikimedia Nederland is exploring what can be done to keep this very
important book in the public domain.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Nederland surveys among editors and readers of Wikipedia

2015-08-11 Thread Sandra Rientjes Wikimedia Nederland
-Apologies for cross-posting-


In June, two surveys were carried out at the request of Wikimedia
Nederland: one among editors of the Dutch language Wikipedia, and one among
the general public (the users of Wikipedia).

The first results of these surveys are now available.  Below you will find
summaries of the main results, and links to the full reports.

Both surveys provide interesting insights - also in the light of the
ongoing discussion about community health.  The challenge for Wikimedia
Nederland now will be to use these to develop better community support and
outreach programmes.

After the summer break, WMNL is planning a discussion with the community to
decide just that.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these surveys.



*A.   Survey among editors - summary of results  (link to full report
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/nl/d/d6/Report_survey_NLWP_editors.pdf)*

*New editors*: A large majority of editors recognizes the importance of a
continuous influx of new editors and feels that new editors are welcome. To
ensure that new editors will not drop out, care and guidance of newbies
must be improved.

*Diversity*: Only 11% of the respondents are women. Everyone recognizes, to
a greater or lesser extent, the disadvantages of limited diversity among
the editors. There is large support for the theory that low participation
of women negatively affects the coverage of topics in Wikipedia. The
atmosphere on Wikipedia is most often cited as a cause for low
participation of women; women mention it much more often as a cause than
men.

*Work Atmosphere*: Opinions are divided about the work atmosphere on the
Dutch Wikipedia. However, there are more editors dissatisfied with the
atmosphere than satisfied. The atmosphere is most frequently characterized
as quarrelsome and distrustful, and quite often also as constructive and
aggressive. A large group of editors on the Dutch Wikipedia has on occasion
been approached in a manner that they considered inappropriate; a small
group admits to having approached others in an inappropriate manner
themselves.

*Conflicts and Conflict Resolution*: The number of conflicts is seen as
high by the editors. Two in five editors state that in the past six months
they have been involved in a situation that felt like a conflict.There are
different opinions on the resolution of the conflicts. There are more
editors who indicate that conflicts are only sometimes or (almost) never
solved in a good way, than those who say this usually or always happens in
a good way. What is also striking is that a fairly large group has no
opinion on the number of conflicts and/or solution thereof.

Egos and stubbornness are considered to play a major role in the emergence
of conflict. Rules/guidelines and moderation by trained people are often
put forward as a solution.

*Communication*: The dialogue (communication) between editors is fragmented
across many channels and occurs in particular via talk pages. The editors
rarely communicate with each outside of Wikipedia, either in person or
online via social media. Wikimedia mailing lists, blogs, newsletters or
notice pages are not frequently read, and attendance of Wikimedia-organized
events in the Netherlands or abroad is limited.

*Wikimedia Nederland*: A large majority of respondents is familiar with
Wikimedia Nederland and about a quarter of the respondents is currently
also a member. (This is not representative of the overall population of
editors - we estimate 10% of active edtiors are members) Generally, the
respondents are satisfied with the (kind of) work WMNL does.



*B. Survey among readers (users) of Wikipedia - summary of results  (link
to full report)
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/nl/d/d6/Survey_among_readers_of_Wikipedia_2015.pdf*


*Knowledge and use of Wikipedia are high, as is satisfaction.*

· Knowledge of Wikipedia and the number of users of Wikipedia have
increased significantly in recent years (2013-2015). Four in five Dutch
people now know about, and use, Wikipedia.

· Levels/frequency of use of Wikipedia have not increased. It is
possible that new users use Wikipedia less intensively.

· More than one tenth of Dutch people said they had installed the
Wikipedia app. That is a very high number.

· In general terms, a large majority thought the articles were very
readable and easy to use. The number of people who thought this was
slightly down on 2013.



*Awareness of matters relating to Wikipedia is falling*

· These are matters such as: the fact that everybody can post and
edit articles, that all text and photos are freely available and that
Wikipedia does not have any profit motive.

· This may also be linked to the arrival of new users who, for the
time being, may be less well-informed.*Slight increase in willingness to
contribute*

· There was a slight increase in the willingness to contribute
between 2013 and 2015. The main

It is also included in this message as plain text.



COMMUNITY AND PARTICIPATION

*Survey among the editing community of Dutch language Wikipedia

WMNL commissioned a survey to get insight into how the Wikipedia community
experiences the working atmosphere on NL-Wikipedia, the views of editors on
the low number of women who contribute to Wikipedia, and the recruitment
and retention of new editors. Two years ago WMNL also surveyed the editing
community, but on different topics. From 3 to 16 June, logged-in editors
could take part in the survey via a general notice on NL Wikipedia. In
total 452 editors completed the survey: 322 Dutch, 91 Belgian en 39 other
nationalities. 51 of the respondents were female. (11%). The full results
will be available early July.



*Scholarships

WMNL provided scholarships to three volunteers from the Netherlands to
attend the International Hackathon in Lyon. A further three volunteers have
received scholarships to attend Wikimania in Mexico City next month.



Wikimedia Conferentie Nederland

Preparations have started for organizing the 8th annual Wikimedia Nederland
Conference in November, with former WMNL chair Ziko van Dijk taking the
lead.



*Erasmus Prize

The awards ceremony for the Erasmus Prize will take place on Wednesday 25
November 2015, at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam. On behalf of the
international community, three representatives will receive the award,
which is presented by the Dutch King Willem Alexander. Other Wikipedians
are welcome to attend the ceremony as a spectator. Together with the Dutch
community, WMNL has compiled the invitation list for this event. During the
week of the award ceremony, a number of other activities will take place,
such as conferences, lectures and Wikimeets. The program for this ‘Erasmus
Week’ is in development and can be found here.



CONTENT


*Project Nature

In May, 250 historical images of birds were added to Wikimedia Commons.
These pictures are from the book de Nederlandsche vogelen donated by our
partner Koninklijke Bibliotheek. The images can be found here. So far 145
have been used to enhance Wikipedia articles.



The project nature working group has been very active: they have made
contact with the volunteer organisation IVN to explore cooperation and are
planning activities with the National Park Utrechtse Heuvelrug. In both
cases, the aim is to inspire the volunteers behind these organisations to
start contributing the Wikipedia. Furthermore, the working group are
preparing an online writing event to commemorate Dutch nature conservation
pioneer J.P.Thijsse.



Wikipedian in Residence Hans Muller started work at Naturalis on May 1. He
is cooperating closely with WMNL's project nature working group.



*Project World War II

The Institute for Sound and Vision released broadcasts by Radio Oranje, the
London based radio station for the occupied Netherlands during the Second
World War. The broadcasts - in Dutch, naturally, can be heard here. Already
22 broadcasts, or just over 12%, have been added to Wikipedia articles.



*Textile project

A group of representatives from Dutch cultural institutions, with support
from WMNL, has initiated a project to improve Wikipedia articles about
textiles, primarily on Dutch Wikipedia. It appears that articles about
basic textile techniques (weaving methods, types of fabrics, materials used
for the production of textiles) still need a lot of improvement. Activities
will include Creation of a structured wishlist and action list of articles
to be written and improved. Guidelines for articles about textiles.
Edit-a-thons with Wikimedians and textile experts from Dutch and Belgian
museums. Image donations, especially of close-up images of textile types
and techniques which are still missing on Wikimedia Commons. If possible:
release of reliable out-of-copyright sources. More information can be found
on the projectpage



*Wiki Loves Monuments

After a one year break in 2014, when WMNL organized the photography contest
Wiki Loves Earth, the Wiki Loves Monuments working group is getting ready
to organise Wiki Loves Monuments once again this year. Even though here was
no contest last year, a lot of work was done to prepare the list of
municipal monuments for this year's event.



*Gendergap

The gendergap taskforce has finalized the projectplan for the Dutch
Gendergap project. Our plan has two main goals:increase the number of
articles on women subjects  recruitment of female editors. In June we have
had a very positive follow-up meeting with ATRIA, the institute for gender
history, to discuss possible cooperation in this project.



*Wikipedia and libraries

The Royal Library, WMNL, and several public libraries are discussing a

COMMUNITY AND PARTICIPATION

*Mediatraining

Seven volunteers took part in a one-day training organized by WMNL on
working with the media. They learned about framing messages, dealing with
tricky questions and practiced being interviewed on camera. We were
particularly happy that two volunteers from our sister chapter Wikimedia
Belgie could join us.



CONTENT

*Education program

The first trainee from ITV - College for translators and interpreters
started work in April. At the request of the Wikipedia-community she will
translate Wikipedia articles from German into Dutch. A second trainee will
start soon, translating articles from the Russian Wikipedia.



*World War II

WMNL partner NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, has
integrated cooperating with and contributing to the Wikimedia projects in
their regular workprogramme for 2015. They are starting on a programme
World War II on Wikipedia, which will aim to release content of monographs
and reference works for the Wikimedia projects, and stimulate its use via
editathons and online activities. A programme start-up meeting was held on
April 24. A second meeting was held on April 29 to locate contents in the
NIOD archives that are suitable for release on Wikimedia projects, and that
are within the scope of World War II. The NIOD expects this program to run
until November 2015 and to include an editathon. The results will be
evaluated at that time, and any follow-up for 2016 will be based on the
evaluation outcome.



*Project Nature

De Vlinderstichting (Butterfly Foundation) released its information on
dragonflies and damsels under a Creative Commons license. It is being used
to improve content on these species on Wikipedia. This proJect is a test
for other content and data donations concerning bigger species groups.

The national museum for natural history Naturalis appointed Hans Muller as
Wikipedian in Residence. He will work for Naturalis for six months,
cooperating closely with the WMNL Project Nature group.



*Gendergap

The Netherlands actively participated in the worldwide Art+Feminism
campaign on 7 and 8 March. We held three edit-a-thons (one at Stedelijk
Museum Amsterdam, one at Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, one at Lloyd Hotel
in Amsterdam). On the Dutch Wikipedia, 53 articles on women were added.
There were also many Wikidata items added in the case of new articles not
previously existing in any other language. On March 8 there was an
editathon at the editorial offices of Dutch feminist magazine Opzij. The
aim there was to write articles about the 1001 historically important women
listed in the Vrouwenlexikon (Lexicon of Women) by Els Kloek.



*GLAM-WIKI 2015

On 10, 11, + 12 April 145 participants from 32 countries came to The Hague
for GLAMWIKI 2015 conference. The National Library and the National
Archives provided the venue for this event. Aim: to exchange ideas and
experiences, give and get inspiration and send out the message that
cooperation between GLAMs and Wikimedia is important. The atmosphere was
lively and creative: already during the conference new ideas were born.



*Wikipedia in the Museum: Wikipedia-touch screen information for museums

WMNL developed an app that makes it easy for museums to provide extra
information for their visitors. Via a tablet, visitors can access a number
of pre-selected relevant Wikipedia articles - in different languages. The
app is designed to present the Wikipedia articles in an attractive way,
with a lot of attention for images. The app is integrated in a column which
clearly indicated that this information comes from Wikipedia. Two of these
columns are now being tried out in the Catharijne Convent Museum for
religious art and the Textile Museum in Tilburg. The code will of course be
made available for the Wikimedia community, and other interested parties.



*Writing event following content donation Museum Catharijne Convent

March 12 we organised a writing event around the content donation of 2500
images of religious art by the Museum Catharijne Convent.



*Writing events Textile Museum

Hay Kranen gave a workshop on (editing) Wikipedia at the Textile Museum in
Tilburg on 2 April. Around a dozen employees of the museum and other GLAM
institutions located in Tilburg were present. Apart from a general
introduction to the various Wikimedia projects, there was room for actual
editing. The Wikipedia in the Museum app (see above) was tested as well.



*Startup meetings

In April 2015, WMNL has held several meetings to prepare new GLAM projects.

-On 23 April, a meeting was held at the collection department of
Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, to discuss possible collaboration

==Community and Participation==

Erasmus Prize awarded to Wikipedia community

On 15 January (the 14th birthday of Wikipedia) the Erasmus Prize Foundation
announced during a seminar in Amsterdam that Wikipedia will receive the
Erasmus Prize 2015. The prize is awarded annually to a person or
institution that has made an exceptional contribution to culture, society
or social science. Wikipedia was chosen because the Internet encyclopedia
provides worldwide access to knowledge in open and democratic way. The
award goes specifically to the international Wikipedia community, the
volunteers behind Wikipedia. Wikimedia Nederland hopes that this
prestigious award will open doors for new partnerships and encourage more
people to become involved.  We are planning a program of activities
throughout the year.

New Years Reception

Saturday, January 17th the Institute for Vision and Sound  hosted Wikimedia
Nederland's annual New Year's reception. The meeting was attended by more
than 80 members, donors, Wikipedians and other interested parties. The day
was opened by Jan Müller (Managing Director of Vision and Sound). The
guests could explore the Sound and Vision Experience or join a tour of the
building

 Video on Wikipedia 

After our New Years reception at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and
Vision, we received a number of questions about the use of video on
Wikipedia. We built a small project page on our local chapter Wiki with a
few instructional videos on how to upload and use video. The community
reacted with enthusiasm and created a new help page out of this
projectpage. Some volunteers became more actively involved with trying to
find open video content online to use on Wikipedia.


==Content==

= Education program - call for translation requests =

The education program has started with a pilot project on translations.
Interns from ITV (a school for interpreters and translators) can translate
selected articles from French, German, Spanish, Italian, English and
Russian to Dutch. These interns will translated articles requested by the
community. In January, a  call for translation requests was posted and got
a very positive response from the community. The first intern will start in
April and will translate articles from German into Dutch.

= World War II =

A number of meetings took place with archives that have collections related
to WWII. We expect to see some media donations over the next few months. We
are also working with our partner NIOD (the national institute for war,
conflict and genocide research) to prepare an editathon on the role of
women during the Second World War.  Work is also continuing on a
Verzetskranten project about the underground press during World War II.
This is a cooperation between NIOD, the National Library and Wikimedia
Nederland. The aim is to improve the number and quality of articles about
illegal newspapers on Wikipedia, and then use these to provide extra
content to the National Library's database holding the digitized version of
the actual newspapers.

= Project Nature =

The Museum for Natural History Naturalis has started the search for a
Wikipedian in Residence. The volunteers involved in project nature are
starting work on processing a content donation by De Vlinderstichting
(Butterfly Foundation). Information on and images of the dragonfly species
of the Netherlands was released under a Creative Commons licence.

= Gendergap =

Preparations have begun for the Gendergap project. Plan is to have a
projectplan written in April. We are exploring possibilities and we are
talking to possible partners for our gendergap project. At the same time,
we are preparing activities for the international Women's day in March.  We
were approached by the feminist magazine Opzij, who want to increase the
number of articles about women on Dutch Wikipedia.  We are cooperating with
them in an editathon at their offices on March 9.  We hope this will be the
start of longer cooperation.

= GLAM-WIKI 2015 =

GLAM-WIKI 2015 is organized by WMNL and will take place in The Hague on
April 10 -12.  The venue will be the National Library and National
Archive.  The programme committee and the WMNL office are busy preparing
this event. A call for proposals was published, the scholarship request
form made available, ticket sales have started.s. The programme

*COMMUNITY: supporting and mobilising volunteers and editors*


   -  Wikimedia Nederland Conference, Utrecht, November 1.

Finding  Connecting was the theme of the annual Wikimedia Conference
Netherlands on Saturday, November 1st, 2014 in Utrecht. The day was opened
by Hans de Zwart (Bits of Freedom) who spoke on freedom and
commercialization of the web. In total 27 speakers gave presentations
during the conference on the themes 'Find', 'Connect', 'Behind the Scenes'
and 'in practice'. A specially designed 'gender gap' lounge area gave more
background about the lack of female contributors within Wikimedia projects.
With over 100 visitors, we consider it a successful conference.

· Wiki-Saturdays

There were four Wiki-Saturdays in November and December. On November 8,
volunteers presented a prototype of Wikiportret 2.0, which will make it
much easier to contribute portraits to Commons. The final product will be
available in February 2015. The last WikiSaturday of the year on December
20 attracted 18 members of the community, two of whom visited the WMNL
offices for the first time.

· Seminar on online communication

WMNL supported a group of community members, many of them moderators, in
organizing a seminar on online communication and the challenges of
communicating with people with a disorder in the autism spectrum. On
December 13, two experts gave presentations for a group of 15 Wikipedians.
This event ended with constructive discussions on options to improve the
working climate on Nl Wikipedia and avoid unnecessary conflicts. In 2015,
WMNL will make available resources for further activities in this area.



*WORK: content, collaboration and activity development*

· GLAM Hackathon, Amsterdam, November 14 - 16.

Thirty developers and programmers came together in Amsterdam to work three
days on new and existing tools. The theme of the meeting was workingwith
data from libraries, archives and museums. Some examples of the impressive
amount of development work during those three days: - A tool that measures
how long a visitor has looked at a picture in Media Viewer. - An interface
for Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and Wikipedia that can be extended with
your own commands. Also you can easily run queries by using this interface
to different wiki platforms. - A website where you can see the paintings
have already been added to Wikidata. In addition 250 files without content
were sanitized and 30,000 images of paintings added to Wikidata. In the
run-up to the Hackathon we organised a workshop Wikidata for GLAMs.

· Writing event on World War II at NIOD, Amsterdam, November 29.

On Saturday, November 29th the research institute [www.niod.nl NIOD] opened
its doors for Wikipedians. One of NIOD's researchers gave a presentation on
his work and how it related to Wikipedia. Attendees were then able to work
in the NIOD library. They wrote and improved articles, added information to
Wikidata and made a start on improving the information on the illegal
press. There was also a tour of the beautiful building where NIOD is housed.

· Project Nature: content donations and a Wikipedian in Residence

We received two content donations: as a pilot project for our cooperation
with NGOs gathering data on wildlife, we are going to upload the
data-collection on Dutch damsels and dragonflies. This is donated by
Libellennet. TheKoninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library) donated the
illustrations from 'De Nederlandsche Vogelen', a magnificent 18th century
book on Dutch Birds. In 2015, we are going to organize events to ensure
that these content donations are used in Wikipedia and other projects. The
museum for natural history Naturalis has decided to appoint a Wikipedian in
Residence for at least 6 months in 2015.

Wikipedia course for beginners and 'intermediates'. In cooperation with the
Zeeuwse Bibliotheek (library of Zeeland, which operates both as a public
and an academic library) we organised two training courses on editing
Wikipedia in November 11 and 25.

*WMNL*

· Staff

Jesse de Vos joined WMNL for three months to work on content donations. He
normally works for our partner Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid. Frank Meijer
joined as a contractor to work on the education programme.

*Money*

· FDC recommendation

The FDC commented positively on WMNL's plan for 2015 and recommended a
grant of €304.000. Although this is slightly less than we requested, we are
confident that we will be able to implement our plans. We are going to look
for external funding, both in cash and inkind, and be extremely
cost-conscious when planning our activities.

· Donations

The holiday season inspired people to give substantial donations to WMNL.
In total we received €15.000 over

*Wikimedia Conference Nederland*

A group of volunteers, board-members and staff are working hard to prepare
the annual Wikimedia Nederland Conference. It will take place on November
1, in Utrecht.



*WORK: content, collaboration and activity development*



*World War II*

Our partner NIOD (the Netherlands institute for war research) is going to
release material. They hold the wartime archives of many organisations and
groups. These archives come with a description of the history of these
organisations in the war years, which are of encyclopedic value and could
improve the quality of Wikipedia content on the history of World War II. In
addition, they are planning to release some of their publications under
CC-BY-SA, starting with a monograph on the history of the underground
press. On November 29, NIOD will open its offices on a Saturday to give
Wikipedians access to its library and experts for a writing event.



*Project Nature*

We are preparing for a writing event in cooperation with the natural
history museum Naturalis on October 5, around the theme of nature in the
Netherlands. This event is also the awards ceremony for Wiki Loves Earth NL
2014, where prize-winning pictures will be announced and prizes will be
handed out to the winners of the Dutch competition. We are now also
discussing cooperation with the KNNV (the Netherlands society for natural
history). They have a very active and knowledgeable membership who we would
like to interest in contributing to Wikipedia. Naturalis is also
considering a content donation. Sebastiaan ter Burg gave a presentation at
Naturalis about the possibilities, such as content donation strategies and
promotional events after a donation in July.



*Wiktionary: Hebrew en Yiddish words in use in Dutch*

WMNL is cooperating with the Sofeer Foundation to integrate their
dictionary of Hebrew en Yiddish words in use in the Dutch language into
WikiWoordenboek (Nl Wiktionary). Nearly 3000 words have been uploaded by
volunteer Romaine. The task is not yet finished: a list of names will also
be uploaded, probably to Wikipedia. More information can be found on the
projectpage.

Expedition Wikipedia: two content donations and one university course

Spinster, Wikipedian in Residence (WiR) for almost 10 Dutch universities'
heritage collections, completed tee content donations for the Expedition
Wikipedia project:

-More than 200 illustrations of historical travel books were donated to
Wikimedia Commons by Maastricht University Library.

-More than 400 photographs of the 1899-1900 Siboga Expedition were donated
to Wikimedia Commons by the Special Collections of the University of
Amsterdam.

From May to early July, a group of 9 students from Maastricht University
have written and improved almost 20 articles about historical travel books
and their authors, on English Wikipedia and in other languages. More
information is available on the course page on English-language Wikipedia.
A similar course is in preparation for September-October at Utrecht
University.



*GLAMwiki Toolset Workshop*

5 GLAMs were trained in using the GLAMwiki Toolset during a workshop on the
28th of July. The workshop started with an introduction by Liam Wyatt, the
GLAMwiki Toolset Coordinator at Europeana. The Amsterdam Museum,
Rijksmuseum, University Museum Utrecht, Netherlands Institute for Sound and
Vision and National Library worked with the toolset. The manual of the GWT
has been improved with the feedback and notes of the participating GLAMs.



*Education*

This year and in 2015 we are going to run three pilot projects to test out
different ways of cooperating with higher education to improve content of
Wikipedia. In the autumn we want to start cooperating with ITV, a college
training translators and interpreters. ITV wants offer their final year
students the option a Wikipedia internship: they will translate Wikipedia
articles. Many ITV students are 'mature

*COMMUNITY: supporting and mobilising volunteers and editors*

· Wiki-Saturdays.

The WMNL office was open for community members on June 7 and 21. The event
on the 7th was visited by 10 members. The first ideas for the year plan
2015 were collected by the 12 participants on the 21st. (see below)



*WORK: content, collaboration and activity development*


   - Wiki Loves Earth events

In total, the Wiki Loves Earth competition resulted in 1349 images of Dutch
nature, wildlife and landscapes uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. The
Institute for Vision and Sounds donated 500 videos of Dutch birds (see
below under content donations for more info) and launched a competition to
integrate the films in the relevant Wikipedia-articles. We also met with
Naturalis, the museum of natural history, to discuss content donations and
an editathon, and are approaching volunteer organisations working on nature
and wildlife for future cooperation.

· Education Programme

WMNL has commissioned a small consultancy firm to carry out a study into
the feasibility of starting an education programme in the Netherlands. The
consultants did desk research and interviewed relevant stakeholders. In
their report, they conclude that there is definitely potential for an
education programme focussing on higher education (universities and
colleges. They recommended carrying out three pilotprojects, exploring
improving content of articles, translating articles from other language
versions of Wikipedia and improving language and style of articles. More
information can be found on the project page.

· World War Two

Volunteers working on the World War Two project made an inventory of topics
whose content could be expanded and improved. This will serve as a
framework for content donations by the National Institute for War Research
NIOD and the Institute for Vision and Sound. We also decided to approach
local history groups and museums. More information on the project page. And
we are also still looking for more volunteers to work on this activity!

· Wikipedia workshops at libraries

Two workshop were organised: a monthly open workshop in Amersfoort (June
13) and a workshop for 9 employees of the public library in Amsterdam (OBA,
June 24). The workshop in Amersfoort attracted people that specifically
came to the library for the workshop and the director of the archive (the
archive is located in the same building).

· Music Edit-a-thon

On Saturday June 14th an Edit-a-thon was organized at the Netherlands
Institute for Sound and Vision. About 30 people showed up to write about
Dutch music from the first half of the twentieth century. There were 15

COMMUNITY: supporting and mobilising volunteers and editors

   -

   Our two-weekly Wiki-Saturdays remain successful: on a Wiki-Saturday the
   WMNL office is open for members of the community as a venue for meetings, a
   quiet place to work on projects or just to have a coffee and a chat with
   fellow Wikimedians. In September, the office was open twice, hosting
   volunteers and board members working on our annual conference, wiki loves
   monuments and the annual work plan 2014.

   Preparations for the Wikimedia Nederland Conference (November 2,
   Utrecht) are in full swing. WMF chair of the Board Jan Bart de Vreede has

late May. Technologists taught and attended sessions on how to write and
run a bot, use the new Lua templating language, how to move from Toolserver
to the new Wikimedia Labs, design, Wikidata, security, and the basics of
Git and Gerrit. The Amsterdam Hackathon was the best attended event in the
history of the Hackathon so far. Check out the workshops
