#1lib1ref Wikipedia Coffee Hour

Imagine a world where every librarian added one more reference to Wikipedia! This is the #1lib1ref campaign which officially runs from 15th January to 5 February 2019, and then again for three weeks in May 2019.


Wikipedia is one of the first stops for readers and researchers. Let's make it better by each adding one reference to Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide.


Please join a group of us in Ulwazi to chat about the #1lib1ref Wikipedia campaign where references are added! We’ll take you through the process of how to add a citation using a brilliant tool called Citation Hunter and another tool called the OAbot to easily edit articles to make academic citation link to open access publications.


When: Wednesday 16 January 2019

Time: 9 am - 10.30 (or so)

Where: Ulwazi


Preparation for the session: please create an account for yourself on Wikipedia.org so that you are able to edit/contribute.
