Wikimedia Commons is a media file repository making available public domain and freely-licensed educational media content (images, sound and video clips) to everyone, in their own language. It acts as a common repository for the various projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, but the scope is much wider: Every file must be realistically useful for an educational purpose.


The three most important processes of Commons are:

  • Getting content
  • Curating content
  • (Re)using content

  • Categorization (uncat bot)
  • Next generation categories
