Subject: [OpenGLAM] [paid internship] Wikimedia Foundation - Program Evaluation 
& Design

Hi everyone,

My team at the Wikimedia Foundation is looking to bring on an intern for 3-6 
months part time (with potential for a full time internship depending on the 
work load). This is a paid internship. You'd be working closely with me and my 
teammate, Jaime.

I'm posting this here (and please forward) because it's relevant to OpenGLAM 
work in some capacity - we will be evaluating programs like GLAM content 
donations and Wikipedians in Residence, and this will involve playing with 
tools like WikiMetrics (so awesome) and if the dream comes true...Europeana 
Toolset. You'll be able to really help us draft amazing evaluation tools and 
documentation. And you can work with me ;)

Education Program", using Wikipedia as a teaching tool in universities around 
the world, Wikipedia Edit-a-thons and workshops, on-wiki contests, and a large 
number of other, volunteer-driven initiatives that aim at growing the amount of 
freely accessible online information. Our goal is to empower Wikimedia Chapters 
and individual volunteers to evaluate their own programs and programmatic 
activities in order to increase impact through ongoing analysis and shared
