Hi All, Here is the link to a grant in progress, which is being written by Marek Zielinski and Łukasz Chełmiński of the Pilsudski Institute of America in New York. They are hoping to do a project to make categorization and adding metadata easier for GLAMs contributing content to Wikipedia.
I have not assisted with the drafting of this grant much at all, but just met with them, and I understand that they will be adding a budget and timeline, potential collaborators in WikiProjects, and WikiData, as well as the GLAM-Wiki toolkit, etc. - describing roles and what they will do in terms of documentation in more detail soon. In the meantime, I just want to let you all know that it exists, since they are in New York, and that they are seeking endorsement. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Pi%C5%82sudski_Institute_of_America_GLAM-Wiki_Scalable_Archive_Project I've heard word from another Wikimedia NYC member, that he will be applying for a grant as well. We also have a draft of the inter chapter travel grant which Lane and I will be working on tonight and tomorrow. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/WM_NYCWM_NE/Inter-chapter_travel_scholarship_project If anyone wants to help with this, please email us. We will no longer be applying for the grant With Wikimedia NE as they are currently on a sort of leave of absence. That's all for now. Thanks all, Dorothy -- Dorothy Howard, Wikipedian-in-Residence and Open Data Fellow Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) 212.228.2320 x127
