Event description

Description

This is an hands-on-computer course. Topics to be covered include photos, categories, infoboxes, and Talk pages.

Participants should have attended one of the previous introductory courses 'Contribute to Wikipedia' at QFHS (or have prior experience contributing to Wikipedia using the Visual Editor).

Please check before the session that you can remember your Wikipedia user name and password (and do any password recovery or new account creation before arriving).

If possible, participants should bring a USB drive containing:

  • a digital photo of a church (or other community building). It must be a photo you have taken yourself; do not bring other people's photos.

  • a scan (or digital photo) of an old photo of a church (or other community building) taken in Australia before 1955 (check your family photo albums)

In both cases, you should know the name and approximate location of the building (e.g. Smallville Town Hall or St Peter's Catholic Church at Bigtown) and the approximate date of the photo (very rough approximations will do for historic photos, e.g. 1930s)

The presenter, Dr Kerry Raymond, is a local and family historian, and is the first Wikipedian-in-Residence at the State Library of Queensland.
