Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

We will run a series of Wikipedia editathons.

2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

  • The Glam CI community will be informed by e-mail and using our local GLAM-Wiki newsletter if the grant request is accepted.
  • In addition, our social profiles ( Facebook page, twitter, etc.) will be used to disseminate information and invite other librarians, archivists who are not registered in the mailing list to participate.

3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?

Yes, we do have experienced trainers to lead the event. Thanks to those training we were able to run several edit-a-thons during 1Lib1Ref campaign, earlier in 2018.

4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Participants can be beginners or advanced contributors. In the case where participants have different background and skill level, we will make mixed working groups so that all participants can contribute.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

As we've always done, we're adding new contributors to the Glam CI mailing list. This list allows us to share information and maintain communication with our various Glam actors.

6. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

  • Before the beginning of the editathons, we will organize meetings with various Glam partners to discuss future events such as 1Lib1ref and eventual partnership opportunities.
