Listed on Commons:Partnerships, but not included here: Commons:Picswiss - not a GLAM project, though very useful, especially in the first years when there were no other free pictures of objects shown. These were the first photos for many Wikipedia articles about Swiss topics. However, as only "preview" images of very low resolution were released under a free license in this project, the aim should now be to replace Picswiss images wherever possible with current, high-resolution photos by Wikimedians/Wikipedians.
Swiss Federal Archives
- Expand Commons:Swiss Federal Archives with some advice, maybe along the lines of advice at Commons:Zentralbibliothek Solothurn / Commons:Zentralbibliothek Zürich.
- Expand documentation of Template:CH-BAR-picture?
- Advertise using wiki description parameter for adding additional descriptions by Wikimedia users in multiple languages.
- Some advice available at Commons:Zentralbibliothek Solothurn
- Descriptions can be changed, translations may be added on Commons - no separate "archival" descriptions to keep.
