Trainee information[edit | edit source]

As part of the Learning at Work programme, the Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums Wikimedian in Residence hosted a Use Wikimedia/Editathon session in the Archives Search Room at Discovery Museum Newcastle.

There was be guidance about creating accounts, the different Wikis including Wikipedia, basic editing and free goodies to take away. Suitable for anyone in the service with an interest in this free on line reference tool - members of staff, volunteers, Wikimedia editors active in the North East and others with a burning interest in the linkage between Wikiproject:GLAMWiki. See if you can arrive with a thought about something that needs changing if you are already a Wikipedia user.

There were morning and afternoon sessions at 10am and 2pm. Introductions to Wikimedia were be given at these times. Attendees may stay for as long or as little as they wish.
