June - July (2021)[edit]

Punjabi Wikimedians have been starting working on ‘Punjabi Audio Books’ project since 1st June 2021. We have tried to engage community with this project. A few highlights are below:

  • For the first of the month, we scheduled a few meetings with team members for further work and the rough number is three of those meetings.
  • Within a month of June and end of the May, we talked to community members about selecting the content to be recorded.
  • For the more discussion, a WhatsApp group was also created and interested participants were added there. Discussion took place there only.
  • We also updated Wikisource Village Pump on the regular bases with important updates.
  • After the consultation of the team and community, we selected 10 books LINK
  • During the month of June, we decided to organise a edit—a—thon in the month of July.
  • In this edit-a-thon, we or participants proofread and validate these books.
  • Out of 10 books, we have worked on 8 books and these are completed after validation.
