Second proofread competition starts on Bengali Wikisource in collaboration with the British Library
After the completion of a month long proofread competition on Bengali Wikisource which happened in collaboration with the Two Centuries of Indian Print (TCIP) project of British Library from mid-March to mid-April, 2021, another competition has started from 1 September 2021, which will run for the next 3 months. Like the previous one, this competition is also getting organized by West Bengal Wikimedians User Group in collaboration with the British Library. High quality scans of public domain Bengali books published during British colonial rule in India and digitized by TCIP are getting uploaded on Wikimedia Commons and after proper checking, indexing and adding data of those books on Wikidata, these books are being added to the competition. The detailed on-wiki documentation of the collaboration can be found here.
