This project is divided into two Grants. This is the main Grant where you will find the description of the project and the resources of Communication/Marketing, Human Resources and coordination that we will need to carry out this project.

Project Goal[edit]

  1. Raise awareness among Glam-Wiki actors regarding Wikipedia and its sister projects.
  2. Add or improve content related to Côte d'Ivoire
  3. Attract new GLAM Partners

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.
During edit-athons , we regularly encounter difficulties related to equipment[1],[2]. It is in this sense that this grant application is divided in two. We find here the needs in terms of marketing communication resources / human resources and coordination. The second part of Grant concerns only equipment needs. Participants will be able to contribute effectively through the human resources and materials required in this grant.

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?

  • As we have listed in report about 1Lib1Ref 2018 sessions in Côte d'Ivoire, for engaging as much librarians as possible it is necessary to provide equipment for those who do not have.
  • 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.


How will you know if the project is successful and you've met your goals? Please include the following targets:

  1. Number of meeting with GLAM partners : 2
  2. Number of events for editathons : 2
  3. Number of participants for editathons: 20
  4. Number of new editors
  5. Number of articles created or improved : 20


This Grant is divided in two. Here we find the resources related to Marketing Communication / Human Resources and Coordination.

The second part consists mainly of equipment and is available here.
