Andrea Zanni (Aubrey) held a course on Wikisource dedicated to librarians. This has been the first course in Italy completely dedicated to Wikisource, and was held on 3 dates: January 11, 18, 25. The course was about 18 hours in total, and it covered pretty much everything you should know for editing Wikisource: navigation, Index pages, Proofread extensions, template for formatting and how to upload books in Internet Archive and Wikisource. There were 20 librarians from all Florence, affiliated with different libraries and institutions. Every one of them has now an account on Wikimedia and started uploading digitizations on Internet Archive and Commons. Given the success of the course, another one is being programmed for Tuscan librarians outside Florence.
