Staff from libraries educated
The locations of one of the sessions: the province building
On 23 and 24 march we gave two sessions in what staff of various libraries in Flemish Brabant were teached about Wikipedia, Wikimedia and more. The two sessions took place in two different places, one in the western side of the province (Relegem/Zellik) and one in the eastern side (Leuven). The sessions included also that each of the participants wrote a basic article on Wikipedia to get a better understanding how editing on Wikipedia works, and what you need to do to get a good article. With 18 participants in the two sessions together, this resulted in 19 articles written. (project page)
