A total of 28 editors of Serbian Wikipedia added 1672 missing references! The absolute winner of this action is the user Vanilica, who added 653 references, which placed him in second place in the world!
The second best participant in Serbia, the user Ziva73 added 252 references, followed by user Ojce with 189 entries, Draganapopovic with 107, and user BuhaM who added exactly 100 references.

Wikipedian in Residence at Museum of Science and Technology
After joining the GLAM program during the residence in the Museum of Yugoslavia and donation of 50 images, the Museum of Science and Technology is now hosting the Wikipedian in residence for two months. Teodora Lukić, an experienced Wikipedian will upload more than 500 images, digitize 2 books, write around 20 articles on Serbian Wikipedia and organize one edit-a-thon for Museum staff. Images uploaded until now, showed us some fun products from history, like tin toys, vacuum cleaners, jukebox, coffee machines, first orthotic arm and (still working) organs. Articles written so far, also show us some very interesting stories, like the Zero-Moment Point Theory or Belgrade hand - the first bionic hand in the world. The residence will end March 31st.
