Introduction to Wikipedia
ACRL Framework for Information Literacy
We recommend following these tasks in the following order. There may not be enough time to complete all tasks during this session, and that's ok! Try to not use too much time finding the "perfect article" and Be Bold with your decisions.
Task 1: Copy Edit
As a collaborative project, Wikipedia articles are in constant need of editing and revision. Writing should be clear, concise, and use neutral language.
Task 1: Edit Infobox
Task 3: Citation Hunt
Citation Hunt pulls snippets from Wikipedia that are tagged "citation needed." The search box below the blue and green buttons can narrow results by a Wikiproject (such as "Wikiproject Fungi") or category (such as "Airports in Portugal"). When you see a snippet that you wish to edit, select "I got this." (Tip- statistics, such as demographic or financial data, are often easiest for finding authoritative sources)
