Wikipedia Editing Workshop

17 years ago, Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger started Wikipedia and today, it’s one of the most popular websites in the world. It’s visited on average over 41 billion times a month! (Wikimedia Statistics 2018).

Are you one of those 41 billion visitors? Have you read something on Wikipedia and thought, ‘That’s not right! Someone should fix that’. You can be the one to ‘fix that’ and set the world right – learn how by attending a QUT Library Wikipedia Editing Workshop.

It’s a great opportunity for academics, HDR students and Research Support staff to engage with your research area using Wikipedia. In the workshop, you’ll practice writing for a general audience and contribute to Wikipedia by checking, verifying or adding information in your area of research or interest.

Join Wikipedia and make a profile before arriving, then put your editing skills into practice when you get here.

It’ll be held in QUT Library in conjunction with State Library of Queensland’s #QWiki Club.

Need a referencing refresher?

Would you like to brush up on your referencing skills?

Book in to a QUT Library workshop!

In our Practical Referencing Workshops you will learn to identify the elements of a reference in some of the common resource types, and get a chance to put together references. APA and Harvard referencing styles will be demonstrated in these workshops. Before you attend, view the short Referencing Made Simple lesson which covers the basics of referencing.

Remember to check QUT cite|write for citing and referencing examples for the four QUT styles – APA, Harvard, Legal and Vancouver.

If you can’t find a specific referencing example on QUT cite|write, you can always build your own reference using parts from other examples. It’s important to be consistent.

If you have any questions about referencing, feel free to contact us.
