IDP Wikipedia Editathon

During this coming October 23-26, IDP will host a Wikipedia editathon at the British Library. IDP staff at the British Library, and at other IDP centres worldwide, will spend a week creating and editing Wikipedia pages on Central Asian archaeological sites, explorers and artefacts. There will also be a public day in which the wider Wikipedia community will be invited to participate. The event is part of the AHRC-funded project Contextualising Texts: Enhancing the Research Potential of Buddhist Manuscript Material, and is being organized with the help of the British Library's Wikipedian in Residence, Andrew Gray. More information about the event will be posted here in the near future.
