Event description

Description

"Imagine a World where Every Librarian Added One More Reference to Wikipedia"

Wikipedia's #1Lib1Ref (One Librarian, One Reference) campaign runs throughout January and early February, and aims to encourage all librarians and library workers to improve Wikipedia by adding references to pages that need them.

As librarians, we are experts in finding out information: let's use our power for good, and make Wikipedia a better, more reliable place, one citation at a time!

At this editathon, we will teach you the basics of editing Wikipedia, show you how to find articles in need of a librarian's attention, and how to add reliable citations. Let's see how many we can do in a day!

This is a free event, but places are limited due to space.

Please bring your own laptop if possible, but let us know if you are not able to bring a laptop as we can arrange to borrow a few if needed.

You may also need to sign up for a Wikipedia account before the event, as Wikipedia limits the number of new accounts that can be created from the same location.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The University is a ten minute walk from Hudddersfield train station, and is well served by local buses. If you are driving, please note there is limited parking on campus, but there are several long- and short-stay public car parks nearby: https://www.hud.ac.uk/about/maps/carparking/

Will refreshments/lunch be provided?

We are waiting to find out about sponsorship for tea/coffee and lunch, so watch this space! If we are not able to provide refreshments, there are several coffee shops and cafes nearby.
