Iranian Wikimedians User Group/Report/ 2019
Iran was part of Wiki loves monument 2019 and as a result, we received around 2500 files which were uploaded to commons.
we had our first #1Lib1Ref campaign in Iran as a result of we had 28 participants and 576 references were added to 513 articles. top 3 participants received Wikipedia T-shirt.
as a result of work with the Wikipedia Library team and the local resources, we were about to offer dozens of accounts to paid resources. These accounts were used to make Wikipedia a richer environment for its users and readers. A few users also received a hard copy of the books they needed for their articles.
Like many past years, we had an Education program running multiple universities and educational institutes as a result of these efforts many students and their teachers used Wikipedia as a supplementary tool in their classes.
