This half-day workshop will explore how your organization can share its cultural heritage content on the world's fifth most popular website: Wikipedia. Based on the instructors knowledge and involvement with the GLAM-Wiki Initiative (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums with Wikipedia), this workshop will teach you how to engage with Wikipedia and the Wikipedia community, the basics of Wikipedia's policies and procedures, basic editing skills to get you started, and unique opportunities to share your institution's cultural heritage holdings with a large and diverse audience of readers and researchers. This workshop aims to build attendee confidence in working with Wikipedia and the importance of sharing data through it - including curatorial data, metadata, and media.
