Some happy Wikipedians in Residence

The Wikimedia UK GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) working group is now ready to find UK institutions willing to work with us by creating Wikipedian in Residence posts.

Our budget is limited but there is enormous scope to be flexible. These posts could be for one day a week, they could limited term posts, based at home – or full time positions at an institution, like the British Library post. We will of course be pleased to see applications from institutions with whom we have already begun a positive relationship – but please do note that the applications have to be from the institutions, rather than individual volunteers.

Time is very short so we need bids to be received by 5pm on November 15th. Please send your completed form to daria.cybulska – at – wikimedia.org.uk Daria will be convening a panel to make the decisions that will be recommended to the board, hopefully at the meeting of November 17/18. Please also feel free to contact us for more information by emailing Daria or calling our office on  020 7065 0990. If you are having trouble accessing the form please email stevie.benton -at- wikimedia.org.uk
