Group photo on day 2 of Assamese wikisource workshop 2022 02.jpg

The last meetup for Assamese Wikisource was held in 2019. After so long gap, during the Assamese Wikisource Workshop at Guwahati, India,User:Gitartha.bordoloi and User:Ishan jyoti Bohra requested to conduct a Wikisource specific Workshop for Assamese Wikisource Community at Guwahati. The community planned this workshop with a very short duration and CIS-A2K have tried to organise at their best effort. So CIS-A2K team conducted a workshop for Assamese Community at Guwahati, Assam on 10–11 June 2022. A total of 15 participants were present at this event. Some feedback can be found here.

The following objectives were planned for this workshop and meetup.

  • To enhance the quality & skills of active Assamese Wikisource editors.
  • To explain the group to Advance Wikisource tools
  • To encourage Wiki librarians to meet each other face to face as hosts after a 3-year gap.
