Punjabi 1 lib 1 ref Campaign
- The event started with Wikilover90 discussing about the community celebration for Wikipedia's 19th Birthday with a small ceremony. It was followed by introduction to The Wikipedia Library, 1Lib1Ref campaign going from 15Jan-5 Feb, 2020. The participants were briefed about the importance of local primary sources for citation in helping us validate the information in enclypedia articles such as in Wikipedia and academic research. The practical aspect of how we can source local knowledge and how via this campaign, we would be enriching articles from Wikipedia. A list of books from Wikisource were created along with the list of articles that could use them as references, was provided to participants on the etherpad. The practical session began with Wikilover90 showcasing, how to use a particular page of books on the Wikisource project could be used to cite the article. The method to add Book citation was taught and participants were allocated the books and articles from the sheet for participating in the campaign.
Later Author Balram gave a talk on importance and value of books and how they have a great impact on a human's life along with the academic purpose of the books. Author Balram is a playwriter, author and a translator. One of his translated works on Rhinoceros written French author Eugene Ionesco has been published in Punjabi version by name of Gainde (ਗੈਂਡੇ). Rhinoceros (French: Rhinocéros) is a play by Eugène Ionesco, written in 1959. The play was included in Martin Esslin's study of post-war avant-garde drama, The Theatre of the Absurd, although scholars have also rejected this label as too interpretatively narrow. Balram has donated the work in CC License to Wikimedia Commons and his book is avaialable on Wikisource.
The event ended with more discussion on 1Lib1Ref campaign, the ongoing Wikisource contest and the upcoming camps and trainings.
The online campaign ran from 15 January to 5 February, 2020 in Punjabi Wikipedia and Wikisource and 36 articles were improved with 54 new citations added from Wikisource index pages.
