Set against the backdrop of DSS2016 European Capital of Culture, the project to wikify Donostia-San Sebastián in collaboration with the city's social and cultural agents and individuals is in full swing! Donostiapedia book remains one of its flagship projects, one relying on the contribution of different individuals who focus on an item related to their area of expertise in connection to the city, putting together an article added to the Basque Wikipedia, and made later into a hard copy version. It will include a collection of city specific articles, with a special emphasizes on highlighted topics, such as lesser known relevant, pioneering women with little recognition for their achievements.
Now ahead of the final product, in order to make the contributors familiar with a wiki environment, several monthly workshops have taken place since June on Saturday mornings at the Ukib library in Tabakalera, where editors get the necessary technical assistance from Basque wikipedians to pursue their editing goal, as well as discussing their queries, such as syntax, templates, or the use of categories, in a friendly atmosphere.
The latest such meeting took place on 6 August, with the next up scheduled for the 3 September. Delivery of articles is due on 22 October, and our expectations are high!
