Abstract[edit source]

Our initial work with the Content Partnerships Hub showed that many Wikimedians request hands-on support for working with content partnerships. For this we are developing the Helpdesk.
Affiliates and volunteers can request support from the Helpdesk, to work with partners to make content available on the Wikimedia platforms.
The session outlines the process for the Helpdesk, and presents initial work. Feedback will be gathered from the attendees on the processes developed, and what kind of support that would be useful. We present ways in which Wikimedians can be involved in the work with the Hub.
The requests to the Helpdesk will be reviewed and prioritized by an expert committee of Wikimedians.

Learning Outcomes[edit source]

1. Learn more about the concept of the Helpdesk
2. Engage in the planning process of the Helpdesk
3. Think about one’s own potential role as an expert contributor to the Helpdesk or the expert committee
