Smithsonian.com recently reported that the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (“NARA”) wants to upload as many documents as it can to the Wikimedia Commons, a partner with Wikipedia. In 2012, NARA uploaded 100,000 images to the Commons. In a report on its Open Government Plan for 2014-2016, NARA said it wanted to upload as much as possible to make it widely accessible to the public.
