The State Library of New South Wales GLAM partnership started with in-house Wiki training, and a program to write Wikipedia articles about current and historic NSW newspapers (see list of target articles - those that are catalogued in Trove). This subpage is kept as a record of those training days.

Exploring Wikipedia: Content Creation Training Manual

Participants could refer to a step-by-step training manual that has been developed by the Wikipedia:GLAM/SLQ to help participants continue to use their Wikipedia editing skills in their own time. Another potentially useful guide (with video) can be found at Wikipedia:GLAM/BeginnersGuide.

How Wikipedians can help[edit]

Before 27 Nov[edit]

  • Find weblinks to reliable sources which establish the notability of these newspapers, and add them as inline references to the corresponding line.
  • Scrape public domain coverpages for the newspapers from trove, upload them to Commons, and link from here. We are likely to use a coverpage for each article's lead image.

On 27-28 Nov[edit]

  • Work on any of the articles on the priority lists, especially those started by participants. The participants will be checking the related changes to see how you have improved their articles.

After 28 Nov[edit]

  • Watchlist the new editors and new articles.
  • Help anyone who continues editing after the event.
