GLAM initiative with the Museum of Veterinary Anatomy will load hundreds of valuable images

Members from the User Group Wikimedia in Brazil have established a partnership with the Museum of Veterinary Anatomy of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science (MAV-FMVZ) of the University of São Paulo in order to relicense high-quality images of objects from the museum collection and upload them to Wikimedia Commons. The goal is to upload from 300 to 400 pictures of mounted animals, macerated skeletons and anatomical models, with a great scientific, educational and artistic value, especially for projects like Wikipedia. This activity has had the support of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat), from Brazil. As a pilot step, the UG BR has uploaded four images to the Commons. So far, three of these pictures were voluntarily improved by an experienced editor and have been nominated as either valued or featured image. Initial uploads are already featured on Wikipedia pages in Portuguese, English and French, eventually reaching tens of thousands of visitors a day.Text by Célio Costa Filho 08/2016. (In Portuguese.)
