Abstract (up to 100 words)

Polish Wikisource is a successful project (one of the largest Wikisources) with a relatively low, but highly motivated group of contributors. Many of them started their adventure due to Wikipedia community issues. I am going to present the history of Polish Wikisource and how several bold decisions made it successful. For several years, the main influx of editors comes from outside Wiki.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Wikisource as way of digitalising printed heritage, enhancing Wikipedia articles and insight into pl.wikisource success factors that can make their lesser Wiki projects work.

Special requirements

beamer, pointer

Slides or further information
