Wikimedia is a global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world. Through various projects, chapters, and the support structure of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia strives to bring about a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. Wikimedia's best known project is Wikipedia.

Wikimedia Österreich is the local chapter in Austria. Our mission is to support the Austrian Wikimedia communities in their quest for free knowledge. The talk will give a brief overview of our projects and activities in general and our approach to community support in particular.

  4. 4. What is a community? Pierre-Selim PPiieerrrree--SSeelliimm [[[CCCCCC---BBBYYY---SSSAAA---222...000]]] “Real communities aren't your cheap labor force. They are real people with passions, hopes, and dreams. Your job is to help them do what they want to do, not to extract labor from them.” Jimmy Wales

  6. 6. Community sourcing Crowd sourcing * more passive, contributory participation models * Examples: voting, tagging, or transcription * focus on the product / result Community sourcing * more collaborative approach between participants * more complex tasks made of a more committed, loyal community * encourages a focus on the process of achieving the goal rather than the mere product/result

  10. 10. Community sourcing rules for engagement I  Content to engage with: A successful open community sourcing project will need content or a topic that motivates the community to participate,  Community participation: The community should take part before, during, and after the implementation of a project.  Access to expertise: Community sourcing is the combination of expert knowledge and community contributions through open dialogue.
  11. 11. Community sourcing rules for engagement II  Community participation: The community must feel empowered to participate and must have a sense of ownership, right alongside the partner institution.  A focus on process, not product: It's not all about the end result when the more valuable aspect of an open authority project is the community and the process behind it.  Evidence of collaboration: Throughout the project, there should be some way of illustrating that the community played a key role.
