Wiki loves ...

The Dutch #Wikimedia chapter loves #GLAM, we have informed you about great collaborations with museums and archives, it is now time for libraries to come into the limelight.

Scheepswerf "de Schelde" in 1912
I just found a blog of the library of Vlissingen, where they actively seek people willing to help with writing the history of shipbuilding in the Netherlands. This would not only be about the companies but also about the development of shipbuilding technology.

Story about the sloop ..
Just googling about the shipyard "de Schelde" brings up many encyclopaedic stories that will fit in wonderfully. When I read in the blog about the organisations that are on board involved in making their material available I cannot wait to learn more so that I can inform you about how this evolves.
