Wikipedia Editathon

The IDP Wikipedia editathon was a great success for us. We managed to source around 100 images in response to the articles that were being worked on. 58 are currently available on Wikimedia Commons with either a Creative Commons or Public Domain license. The rest will be uploaded shortly and we plan to add more in the future. Some of the pages that our staff and wikipedians worked on include: Many thanks to all the wikipedians and students who came along to the event and to everyone else who contributed. We would like to give a special thank you to the British Library Wikipedian in Residence Andrew Gray who worked tirelessly to make the event run smoothly.
