#1Lib1Ref - How to give Wikipedia a present for its birthday!

#1Lib1Ref - How to give Wikipedia a present for its birthday!

Wikipedia celebrates its 17th birthday on January 15th 2018. To mark the occasion, the Wikimedia Library is calling on educators, librarians and anyone who ever uses Wikipedia all around the world to add one reference to Wikipedia to backup a fact that needs it (marked with 'Citation Needed') between Jan 15th and Feb 3rd 2018. Because any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide. And it only takes a few minutes to share open knowledge. This video demonstrates where to find out about #1lib1ref, how to use the Citation Hunt tool to identify a random snippet on Wikipedia that needs a citation... and how to go about finding & adding a reliable source in order to change that citation needed to citation added! For more information on the #1lib1ref campaign please visit: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikipedia_Library/1Lib1Ref
