#QWiki Club is a monthly Wikipedia editing club established to build on the success of the #1lib1ref campaign. You are invited to attend to become more confident in your skills and edit Wikipedia pages around a different theme each month. We'll use the hashtag #QWiki when saving our edits and across social media. Wikipedian Kerry Raymond from Wikimedia Australia will be at the sessions to provide training and support.

#QWiki is open to any member the Queensland GLAM community.

The club will meet on the first Monday of every month from 12-3pm at The Edge building at State Library of Queensland. You decide how long you want to stay and you can join us at any time during the session.

If you cannot make the sessions at SLQ, you can still be part of #QWiki, wherever you are. Use the hashtag #QWiki and let us know how you're contributing!

RSVP: Here by adding your details to the list. There are 15 Mac computers available or you can BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Hints and Tips[edit]

#QWiki July 2018: Magnificent Makers[edit]

This SLQ exhibition is documented here. As the SLQ website is licensed as CC-BY for text (but not images), we can reuse this material to expand articles about Queensland inventors.

Instructions[edit]

Step 1. To provide the attribution required by the CC-BY license, add the following to the Reference section of your Wikipedia article. Tip: to copy and paste from here, remember to open this page in the Visual Editor (the big blue button) in order to copy it so you get the "Attribution" heading and the text and all the links and formatting.

Attribution[edit]

This Wikipedia article contains text from Magnificent Makers, published by the State Library of Queensland under CC-BY-4.0 licence, accessed on 4 June 2018, archived on 13 May 2018.

Step 2. Copy any text you want to use from the Magnificent Makers website into the Wikipedia article. Cite the Magnificient Makers webpage on each paragraph you copy (remember you can use Cite > Reuse as the citation is already in the article).

Steps 3 and 4 can be done in any order.

Step 3. Look for addition information you can add from other sources (some suggestions are above). Remember to cite your source. If the source is flagged as copyright, you must rewrite in your own words and cite each paragraph.

Step 4. Add photos. Two approaches to try:

  • Use Insert > Media > Search to add some photos from Wikimedia Commons (be creative with the key words).
  • Use Trove and/or the SLQ catelogue to find other photos and add then using Wikimedia Commons > Upload to add them. Note the photos must be out-of-copyright or CC-BY or CC-BY-SA licensed (ask Jacinta and Kerry if you are not sure about the licensing).

#QWiki April 2018: Reusing SLQ blog content[edit]

Today we are adding information from SLQ blog posts to relevant Wikipedia articles. SLQ blog posts are CC-BY licensed.

Article contributions[edit]

#QWiki March 2018: International Women's Day[edit]

Today we will be adding needed citations to articles about Australian women. We will use Citation Hunt to search for topics starting with "Australian women" which will offer us random articles that have a "citation needed" tag.

Read the information associated with the "citation needed" tag and then, using your super-library skills, find a reliable citation that supports the information.

Then using the Visual Editor, open the article, and remove the "citation needed" (select it and press Backspace/Delete). Then make your citation to the information you have found.

Enjoy!
