Hi John and everyone, first, congratulations for all these impressive projects. I'm particularly interested in the second one which is a big step to help cultural institutions incorporate the contribution to wikimedia projects in professionnal practices. I'm wondering how this online training module has become a "mandatory" training module for all of public librarians ? What is the link between the National Library of Sweden and the other public ones ? Are they linked to cities, municipalities or directly to the National Library of Sweden ?
Do you think an english documentation will be available ? Congrats again for thoses projects !
