Abstract & description[edit source]
An in-person/virtual meeting of African Wikibrarians, partners and community members who are interested in collaborating with African Librarians on Wikimedia projects
The participation of African Librarians on Wikimedia projects has increased over the years however this has been remote/virtual which has somewhat limited opportunities for encouragement and collaboration.
Following a brief update on our collective participation in Wikimedia Projects, former students of AfLIA-led programmes and other Wikibrarians will be invited to share their work and experiences .It will end with an interactive session that encourages participants to interact, share ideas, and explore opportunities for collaboration. It will also be an opportunity for this community to discuss our collective future.
