Are you searching for materials that you can freely use in Wikipedia projects? Are you confused about copyright for printed materials in the United States? We can help! In this [https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81949566322?pwd=eDgvWmMyQ1hSaHVJVWk2UnRwcS9QZz09 Zoom Workshop] , the Philadelphia WikiSalon will demonstrate a clear, easy to follow, step-by-step workflow to evaluate the copyright status of a journal or periodical published in the United States. Once the status of an issue is identified, content from a public domain or freely licensed journal can be added in whole or part to Wikimedia Commons or a project such as WikiSource. With this knowledge, you can unlock a treasure trove of public domain resources that can be mined for secondary sources, images, and more. After the live demonstration, there will be time for questions and discussion. Supplemental PDF and video tutorials will be provided, along with practice workflow exercises and copyright resource lists. This workshop is suitable for a range of attendees: from newer through experienced Wikipedians. The Philadelphia WikiSalon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Philadelphia) is a skills-oriented online meetup for Wikipedia Projects. Our monthly sessions alternate between demonstrations of new skills and work sessions to practice skills. Demonstrations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Philadelphia/Demonstrations) target a specific skill related to Wikipedia, Wikidata, or Wikimedia Commons. Attendees share what they are working on, ask questions, and get feedback and support. Many of our regulars are librarians, archivists, professors or people interested in digital humanities and the sciences, but everyone is welcome!
