Wikipedia GLAM-on-Tour 2019

At the Iron Library's third Wikipedia event, experienced "Wikipedians" spent four days writing about the history of GF.

Wikipedia meets Iron Library

From 20-23 June 2019, the Iron Library and the Georg Fischer Corporate Archives hosted the sixth GLAM-on-Tour event in Switzerland. It was already the third time that an event was organized in cooperation with Wikimedia Switzerland. During the four days, the twelve participants had time to write Wikipedia content with the resources of the Iron Library and the holdings of the Corporate Archives. Moreover, several guided tours were on the itinerary – including a tour of the Museum zu Allerheiligen in Schaffhausen and, of course, a tour of the Klostergut Paradies where the participants also worked on their articles. The participants have been very industrious: in the four days, they wrote 20 new Wikipedia articles and edited and expanded 160 existing ones. For example, there are now new articles on the GF-directors Ernst Homberger and Ernst Müller, the neighborhood Ebnat in Schaffhausen, and on the GF factory railroad.
