The Open Access Media Importer Bot was approved on Wikimedia Commons at the end of October. It searches publication databases (such as PubMed Central) for audio and video files that accompany scholarly papers as supplementary material, and uploads them to Wikimedia Commons if they are available under suitable free licenses. It has already imported more than 9000 files.
