ScopeEdit

This project aims to coordinate the sharing of resources between the Pritzker Military Museum & Library and the Wikimedia community. The Pritzker Military Museum & Library's mission aligns closely with Wikipedia’s goal to provide "free access to the sum of all human knowledge." The Museum and Library's collections covers all branches of the United States military from the colonial era to the present. The collections focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier as an important element in a democratic society.[1]

PlansEdit

  • to train staff and others how they can add material to Wikipedia according to Wikipedia rules and without violating Conflict of Interest guidelines
  • to write articles on topics and authors represented in the collections of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library
  • to update book citations in general military history articles, including adding ISBNs and OCLC numbers
  • to add VIAF numbers to biography articles of individuals associated with military history and military writing including fiction
  • to illustrate articles with images donated by Pritzker Military Museum & Library and to properly categorize these images at Wikimedia Commons
  • to create all the proper user boxes, project tags, etc. in order to keep track of project statistics.
