Wikipedia – make it work for your museum and your collections
FREE ½ day training session on Tuesday 13th December at the Black Country Living Museum, Dudley 10.00 (registration from 9.30) – 1 pm Tea and coffee provided (lunch not included)
Is your museum looking to use Wikipedia to distribute information about your collections? Do you want to know how you and your volunteers can set up a Wikipedia account, edit and create information on the site? Do you want to know more about using Wikipedia and Wikicommons?
If the answer is yes, then why not come along to the Wikipedia – make it work for your museum and your collections training session. The session is being led by Andy Mabbett, a highly experienced Wikipedia editor and content writer. Please note that during the session you will be producing content for Wikipedia, so you will need a lap top with enabled public Wi-Fi access. We will be able to provide a small number of laptops on the day.
After the session, there will be support available from Andy Mabbett to enable your museum to develop Wikipedia projects. This will be available on a first come, first served basis. (for West Midlands museums only).
There are only 8 places available. To book your place, or for more information, please email Emma Buckler at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 6th.
