From Wikimania 2014 • London, United Kingdom

I'm Gill Hamilton the Digital Access Manager at National Library of Scotland. I'm a librarian and working to improve access to information and knowledge for all.

National Library of Scotland in partnership with Wikimedia UK hosts Ally Crockford our Wikimedian-in-Residence. Ally has been in post for a year and has done fantastic work to raise awareness of Wikimedia and its projects, host edit-athons and train staff and others from GLAM and educational organisations. Ally has also been instrumental in influencing the Library to develop a policy on open licensing of its resources that has enabled the initial release of Library content on to WikiCommons. You read more about her residency on the project pages and in her 12 month report.
