- Training and workshop - National Library of Haiti
This activity was organized as a summer digital school in Haiti about Wikipedia and related projects (Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, Lingua Libre). The intent was to mobilize and outreach to the students, researchers and professionals in order to reinforce the presence of Haiti (its scientific, cultural, historical and geographical heritage) in the Wikimedia projects through the creation of a Haitian and French-speaking contribution network. The training was from 10 to 13 July 2018 at the National Library of Haiti in Port-au-Prince. The project was initiated by the Réseau des jeunes bénévles des Classiques des sciences sociales en Haïti (REJEBECSS) and involved various partners for logistic and execution such as Bibliothèque nationale d'Haïti, the Association pour la promotion de la science ouverte en Haïti et en Afrique (APSOHA), the Science ouverte en Haïti et Afrique francophone (SOHA), the Institut universitaire et technologique d'Haïti (UNITECH), the École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l'information of the Université de Montréal (EBSI), Wikimedia Canada, the Cégep de Chicoutimi, the Cinémathèque québécoise and OpenStreetMaps Montreal. The project was supported by microgrant through WikiFranca (Wikimedia France, Switzerland and Belgium).
- Total number of participants: 97.
- It was the first experience with Wikimedia for the Bibliothèque nationale d'Haïti. The pedagogic content and activities allowed the transmission of the basics of the contribution to Wiki. The issue about valorization of Haitian heritage and culture really interested and mobilized the participants.
- The media coverage was significant through different means of communication (newspapers, TV, social networks, etc.). The medias, interviewers and interviewees, pointed out the contribution of projects such as Wikipedia and organizations such as Wikimedia Canada and WikiFranca.
