Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
In Argentina, many of the institutions that have material to be digitized keep it in very poor conditions and have neither the knowledge nor the technical resources for the appropriate preservation of the digital documents they own. Thus, WMAR makes up for the deficiencies of cultural institutions, focus on providing skills and technical tools for digitization. We decided to create the role of a central Wikipedian in Residence at WMAR
In this lecture we will explain the role of the WIR in Latin American institutions. What´s the methodology to operate with Argentinean institutions, regarding agreements, chosen institutions, technical work and documentary procedures.
We are going to let knows what to do with the material and how to use it in the sister projects.
