Abstract
Workshop that would gently introduce Wikipedia to librarians, using some of the tools and techniques developed in our Better Together training program. This is different than most training programs that dive right into learning to edit.
Length of presentation
3 hours (ideally this would be before the conference)
Special requests
Need a training room and some skilled Wikipedians to assist.
Preferred room size
20?
Have you presented on this topic previously? If yes, where/when?
I did a dry run of this at the Computers and Libraries Conference with about 10 participants. It was quite succcessful.
If you will be incorporating a slidedeck during your presentation, do you agree to upload it to Commons before your session, with a CC-BY-SA 4.0 license, including suitable attribution in the slidedeck for any images used?
I have a slidedeck and reworking images might be hard but I can try!
Will you attend WikiConference North America if your submission is not accepted?
Yes
