Digital commonwealth and other GLAM files to Commons upload tool(s)[edit]

- [1]

Is there a way to mass upload files (such as the one you uploaded above) from digitalcommonwealth.org or other similar websites. I have used the flickr to commons tool. Is there a similar tool for GLAM websites?

Thank you, --Ooligan (talk) 20:31, 7 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Ooligan: Aside from Flickr2Commons I'm not very handy with mass uploading. Commons:GLAMwiki Toolset and Commons:Pattypan might prove helpful. You can also propose bot assisted mass uploads at Commons:Batch uploading, where the community can evaluate feasibility and determine some best practices (e.g. which template and license to use, how best to transfer metadata, etc.) before implementation. And lastly, anecdotally, it appears that the Boston Public Library Flickr stream adds a needless, more restrictive CC license to public domain media (e.g. here), even though they state "no known copyright restrictions," in what resembles Copyfraud. Requiring attribution, and/or a link to a CC license, is not a requirement for faithful scans of public domain images, especially in the US where "sweat of the brow" doctrine doesn't confer any additional copyright authorship to the person scanning or uploading a work (see {{PD-Scan}} and Commons:Threshold of originality).

Thank you for the reply.
In "faithful scans of public domain images"- Is a download or screenshot on a PC of a PD-expired image a faithful scan? Or do I need to do I need to use scanner equipment?
Also, can I take a photo of an original PD photo and release for use it as PD? Similarly, Can I take a photo of a PD-expired photo that has been published in a book and release it as PD?
