In the meantime we received the material of Domenico Rudatis (1898 - 1994), one of the first alpinists, to be uploaded in Commons and Wikisource. ====Wikipedian in Residence in Federal Archives==== As many other Wikimedians and Wikipedians, also Micha Rieser (our Wikipedian in Residence in the Federal Archive ) participated at OKCon in Geneva in September. He gave much appreciated insights into the Wikipedia World. We strongly recommend to have a look at the presentation ''How GLAM can support Wikipedian'' [https://www.dropbox.com/s/dnq8gf88uqfr9ck/OKCon.pptx] he gave. Enjoy! ====Wiki Loves Monuments==== Wiki loves Monuments was going on throughout September. The Swiss contest was ending successfully with having around 4.000 uploaded images and 188 participants. The winners will be announced during the award-ceremony on November 30 in the National Library in Bern. Don't miss it, because a fantastic frame program is waiting for you: A guided tour through the archives of the Swiss National Library, Workshops and a photo exhibition.
