Want to get involved in the #1Lib1Ref campaign but need help?

As you know, the 1Lib1Ref challenge was launched on Sunday 15 May for (not only) librarians around the world and will run until 5 June. This campaign challenges librarians to use the literature in their library to enrich Wikipedia with at least one citation (reference).

However, it is important to add the hashtag #1Lib1Ref to the Wikipedia summary when editing Wikipedia and to be logged into Wikipedia. This is the only way your reference is automatically registered in the campaign.

Is this already too complicated for you, or are you just not 100% sure? You don’t have to worry about it!

Especially for those who don’t have hands-on experience editing Wikipedia, there will be a special online Open Hour Call!

Open Hour Call will take place on Monday, May 23, 2022 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You will be able to consult with the main lecturer of Wikimedia CR – Pavel Bednařík – about the selection of the article and reference, or about the technical aspect of completing the reference.

Link to the consultation meeting is here.

And the link to the Facebook event with more information is here.

The bi-annual #1Lib1Ref campaign is run by the Wikimedia Foundation and supported by the Wikipedia Library Team and Wikimedia Affiliates worldwide. We also work closely with librarian communities locally and globally to promote the campaign.
