Event Name[edit]

WikiIndaba Conference 2018

My Input[edit]

I have participated and learnt a lot from the teachings delivered by Felix Nartey at the (# 1Lib 1 Ref) ("One Librarian, One Reference") workshop which is a Wikipedia publicity drive that asked every librarian on Earth to mark the 15th anniversary of the foundation of Wikipedia, on 15 January 2016, by adding a citation to the online encyclopedia and i am happy to say that i have started spreading the word in my country about # 1Lib 1 Ref which is now going on so well.

I had time to collaborate with the organizing team for the 2018 event, that is the Tunis User Group. They are so amazing and I would like to congratulate them for the job well done....Hurrayǃǃ
