In this session we will introduce you to Wikisource: Wikimedia’s free library of openly-licensed source texts. Including, an introduction to what Wikisource is and how you can engage with it, a short practical activity where you will learn how to navigate Wikisource and proofread a page of text. And an example of how an out-of-copyright/openly-licensed PhD thesis has been transcribed to Wikisource so the text is now 100% searchable, quality-checked and linked to from Wikipedia just 1 click away.Find out more »
