Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

The GLAMwiki Toolset project is a collaboration between various Wikimedia chapters and the Europeana foundation. The goal of the project is to provide a set of tools to make batch uploads of GLAM content in Wikimedia Commons as easy as possible. The additional tools have to make sure that re-use can easily be tracked; and that Commons materials can easily be integrated back into the collection of the original GLAM or even other GLAMs.

The tool was requested for a long time by the Wikimedia Community and will be officially launched at the end of March 2014. At the moment it is already being used by a number of institutions like the British Library, the Rijksmuseum and the National Library of Poland. The Europeana Foundation has established a large network of GLAMs and will continue to work with them and the local Wikimedia chapters to facilitate the batch uploads to Wikimedia Commons and bring digital cultural heritage to a wider audience.

During this presentation the tool will be introduced and the potential of mass-uploads of cultural content will be discussed, followed by how Europeana will continue to work with the Wikimedia community and GLAMs to make their material available to all.
