Wiki Tuesday

This meetup will be spent working on two projects that we've started as part of Wiki Tuesday's at Western. Hands-on help with editing will be available - drop by!

1. Indigenous place names project

The Indigenous place names project: adding Indigenous place names for local waterways to Wikipedia and Wikidata.

2. London historic maps collection

Integrating Wikidata into uploads to the Wikimedia Commons. This is a project to add the London Historic Maps Collection and corresponding metadata to Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata. This collection has its own gallery on Wikimedia Commons that links to the collection on Scholarship@Western. All maps that are uploaded as part of this project are listed in the Wikimedia Commons category, Maps of London, Ontario.
