Abstract

Share Your Knowledge (2011-2012) is a project that enhances the contents and work of cultural organisations through Creative Commons and the Wikimedia Foundation websites, strengthens their use and visibility and makes them available on Wikipedia. It is prompted by the good results of a previous experience with the Italian GLAM Associazione Amici del Museo delle Grigne Onlus. Share Your Knowledge is a step-by-step procedure which involved around 100 cultural institutions. It was initiated in 2011 a as subproject of "WikiAfrica", which is focused since 2006 on enhancing the production of African contents on Wikimedia Foundation's sites (especially articles on Wikipedia) with the involvement of research and documentation centres, museums, institutions for international cooperation and archives. Share Your Knowledge helped WikiAfrica reaching its 30,000 African content milestone by the end of 2012, regarding the number just as a chance to collaborate and engage as many people and institutions as possible.
