Today, we are releasing a new feature in the labs area of the collection online that reports on our recent project to cross-post no known copyright images to Wikimedia Commons. When we started the project to cross-post all those images, we had no idea what would happen. We figured a good analysis would be a perfect addition to the Brooklyn Museum collection labs.
This labs project highlights our progress by detailing how many images we’ve cross-posted to date and uses the MediaWiki API to show what the wiki community has been doing with the images once they landed there. If you are curious, like we were, to find out how the wiki community has been interacting with our images, this is the project for you! Check out… Where in the Wikiverse is the Brooklyn Museum?
