SPEAKER: Liam Wyatt
Liam Wyatt is the Vice President of Wikimedia Australia and an
info-philanthropy advocate. He received the University  of New South
Wales medal in history for his thesis on the Academic Lineage of
Wikipedia. He works to try to find the common ground between the
museum, education and Wikimedia communities. Previously he was the
multimedia coordinator for the Dictionary of Sydney and Project
officer for the Australasian Legal Information Institute.  Liam will
be visiting Columbia after a stop in Denver, where he will be leading
the Wikimedia session as part of the "Museums and the Web" conference
(http://www.archimuse.com/mw2010/index.html).  He is en route to
London, where he will be the inaugural "Wikipedian in Residence" at
the British Museum

The availability of art images through Wikimedia and other openly
accessible sources is often defined and controlled by license
agreements and institutional policies asserted by museums and even
libraries that hold the original art collections.  Re-evaluation and
critical examination of policies that will enable museums to better
contribute to and use Wikipedia or Wikimedia Commons, and for the
Wikimedia community to benefit from the expertise in museums.  This
session will provide a close look at rules, guidelines and examples
that can be clarified to order to promote active engagement between
the keepers of the collections and the scholars, publishers, and other
members of the public who seek to benefit from them.
