Wikimedia Foundation UK
A beginner's guide to Wikipedia
Wikipedia has rapidly become one of the world's largest repositories of information on a vast range of subjects. It's profile and volume of use is not reflected in the attitudes expressed by many academics towards it.
Complaints about it's inaccuracy, gaps, vandalism and other problems abound.
There is one obvious solution to all these: FIX IT!

This workshop will help people learn how to do this: going through the basics of the site's structure, how to edit and how to communicate with other Wikipedians.

This is a unique opportunity. Simon Tagish is an experienced Wikipedian and is donating his time and skills to KMIC.
