Images from Bryn Mawr College

The purpose of this set of galleries is to organize images of different types from Bryn Mawr College, to track contributions of different types and to make it easier to find and create comparable metadata and licensing for similar images.

Canonical ExamplesEdit

Artwork is useful for paintings, three dimensional artworks, and illustrations from books. (The Book template is intended only for complete books, not for single pages or illustrations.)

Photograph is intended mainly for historical photographs from museum collections. Its parameters are also useful for describing more current institutional photographs and photographs of historical and scientific artifacts from museum collections. (An Artifact template would be useful for GLAM institutions.)


The Information template is the most basic Wikimedia Commons template. It can be used if you don't need to add collection- or photographer- specific information to an item. If you aren't sure what is appropriate, use the Information template, and put details in the description.
