Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref Campaign - 1 Librarian adding to 1 Reference to Wikipedia for its 18th birthday.
From Ewan McAndrew on January 13th, 2017
Wikipedia celebrates its 18th birthday on January 15th 2019. To mark the occasion, the Wikipedia Library is calling on information professionals & educators all round the world to add one reference to Wikipedia between Jan 15th and Feb 5th 2019 because any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide.
This video demonstrates where to find out about #1Lib1Ref, how to use the Citation Hunt tool to identify a random snippet on Wikipedia that needs a citation (or one filtered to your interest area)... and how to go about finding & adding a reliable source in order to change that 'citation needed' to a citation added!
The #1Lib1Ref campaign is primarily aimed at librarians contributing to Wikipedia BUT the campaign is open to anyone who wishes to help celebrate Wikipedia's 18th birthday and add a reference (or two) to improve Wikipedia and demonstrate that we are really are not in a post fact world. #FactsMatter
