The idea of this post is give information of two bibliography sources that we use to prepare our Wikipedia´s project. This project is about The Reproductions Museum of Bilbao. Although we use more than two bibliography sources to prepare the article, we have selected two to describe them deeply. These two sources are: Bilbao International and J.M.A Urrutia´s
El Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas de Bilbao

We start:

Bilbao International is a fantastic Web Page whose aim is offer information of Bilbao. But, this short description can be very poor, since there are other Web Pages which may have the same function. The main difference between Bilbao International and the others is that this Web wants to promote Bilbao in an international way, giving information of activities and events.

In Bilbao International we can see activities related with topic such as “Art Design”, “architecture”, “gastronomy”, “events” or Bilbao in the world”. All of them are really important aspects to carry out policies of city-marketing. They are different elements which are creating an International Brand of Bilbao, giving at the same time, an official information to people and thus, correct and complete information.

There is a very interesting part of the Web page: Bilbao Urban Evolution. Here we can discover information of how many changes Bilbao have done in order to turn into a tourist, design and modern city. For instance, there is an article of “Metro Bilbao” and “The tram returns to Bilbao” and so on.

On the other hand, Bilbao international gives us the possibility to select language. If I have to be sincere, and if the Web Page is an international one, the language selection can be consider a little bit scarce. We have to select one of these three languages: Spanish, Basque and English.

We select this Web Page to our Wikipedia´s article  since it offers to us the possibility to have an access to relevant information of Reproductions Museum Bilbao. Specifically, we extract the information to talk about the temporary exhibition, for instance ” Work in the Context”. What is more, we use this Web Page in order to explain different kind of events that the the Museum organizes.

Obviously, is not the unique bibliograhpy that we have used to prepare our Wikipedia article, but we can conssider it one of the most important one, since as we have said it provides with the temporary expositions information that there isn´t  in books.

Thinking about books and knowing that the project is about the Reproductions Museum Bilbao, this book:  Urrutia, J.M.A. (1991). El Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas de Bilbao. Colección Temas vizcaínos. Argitaratu. ISBN 9788487245688. Retrieved 22 March, 2013.   have been for us a fantastic one. Above all, because it was the only book that has been written about the museum. The other bibliography that we have use is not as important as this book is. Jose María Arenaza Urrutia is an historian from Gipuzkoa. He is not very famous person but we can consider him as a reliable source. He gives all of information of the “Number of [artistic pieces]pieces” or one of the most important part in my opinion: “The Reproductions” (what are artistic reproductions? , from where they come?, how quality they are?,  and so on). We can´t say nothing about the citation impact of this book because there is not count, although we can consider it relevant since maybe it is the only monographic book of the Reproductions Museum Bilbao.

Other sources that we use to complete the information are:
