Using openly licensed materials from external sources on Wikipedia[edit]

Hi all

I've been working on getting text from openly licensed report from UNESCO publications used on Wikipedia. I think all of the work that I'm doing will be reusable by others to import text from other sources.

The first step was to create clear instructions and an easy to use template to import text which I've now done (with a lot of help).

The next step is to find ways to make it easy for people to find openly licensed text from UNESCO publications to use on Wikipedia articles and in addition find useful references within them as well.

I have created two pages on Wikiproject UNESCO, one for reusing openly licensed text and one for finding references.

I'm now trying to find ways to make it easier for people to find the open license text they are looking for from within UNESCO publications. UNESDOC is the publications database and has a search function but if anyone has any ideas or examples of how else I can help people find useful text I would really appreciate it.

I had been commenting on this project for some time. It is interesting and relevant to open access, and anyone might join in commenting. Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:05, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Open Access Week[edit]

Open Access Week is now, the last week of October. In New York we are marking the week with several events. This year I created a category at Category:Wiki Loves Open Access Week to list events. I know there have been others in the past which have not been documented. My hope is from this year forward to keep better records of these events when they happen.
