Abstract

The movement is gradually growing towards more newer or emerging communities, most of which have very little digital resources hence the majority of content lie in its original hard state and can not be utilised in creating or improving knowledge on Wikipedia. In our quest to include the sum of all human knowledge we need to be reminded of the unprivileged and the current minority who are unable to share information the same way we do. These growing concerns have led to some digitisation projects and has produced lots of results and information that needs documenting and honed for the use of future explorers of similar projects.

Come join us to discuss and share experiences on how to collectively create a reference portal for running digitisation projects while addressing the opportunities available to our movement.

What will attendees take away from this session?
  1. Share and learn from other peoples experiences on digitisation.
  2. Establish a generic workflow for digitisation.
  3. Come up with documentation around opportunities and threats around digitisation.
