WikiLounge at The University of Manchester
25 people have received tickets for the whole day thus far. We're looking to have a very busy day. If you know anyone who would be interested in coming for even a short period, that would be awesome.
- Teach members of the public about Wikipedia
- Assist members of the public in using Wikipedia for academic research
- Teach members of the public how to correct errors on Wikipedia (sometimes in a way that ensures a lack of COI)
A WikiLounge is mainly a casual event, which can be compared to OTRS in real time. You can expect to meet very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invitation for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions. If you are thinking about coming in a learning capacity, please consider signing up here.
We are meeting at John Rylands University Library at The University of Manchester so all ages are welcome. We are hoping to gather a list of volunteers here to teach members of the public, students and academics as well as curators of the library, how to use Wikipedia.
Please note that the full address is:
- John Rylands University Library
- Oxford Road
- M13 9PP Manchester
- United Kingdom
We are looking to start at 10am and finish at 6pm but you cetainly don't have to be there for the whole day.

- Far too busy to do it on Monday, but certainly would be interested in coming over in the future. It's not too far for me. WormTT 12:27, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
