Following last year's experience, the Children's Literature Documentation Centre of Donostia, the College of Education of the Basque Country University, with the collaboration of BWUG, have organized the Children's Literature Wikiproject 2017. In this three program involving three institutions, the main subject will be the creation and development in the Basque Wikipedia of 17 main characters of children literature (Robin Hood, Elmer, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood...). Education College students are working on these articles as part of their studies, taking good advantage of the large volume of material on children literature held in the Children's Literature Documentation Centre.
Wikimedian in residence
On 22th March, Leire Cano started working for five months as a Wikimedian-in-Residence in the Children's Literature Documentation Centre. She will help and monitor the main program. She will also work in releasing some material related to children literature, such as book covers, illustrations, drawings... This year we are going to put our best in recording voices of Basque children literature writers. Therefore, she will record a short introduction of herself in order to include the voices in their articles' infoboxes. In addition, she will ask them to read a short piece of their work that she will insert in the book's related article.
