Swiss Archives Day 2017
Wikipedia workshop in the Iron Library, June 9 2017

The Swiss Archive Day on 9 June 2017 was jointly organized by the Corporate Archives of Georg Fischer Ltd. and the Iron Library Foundation in Schaffhausen.

A Wikipedia workshop was held at the Iron Library from 10:00 to 20:00. The participants learned from the head of Wikimedia Switzerland what is important when writing in Wikipedia - and put what they had learned directly into Wikipedia. They brought their own topics with them or let themselves be inspired by literature and sources in the Iron Library and the Corporate Archives. We provided a wide range of material on various topics. Even newcomers who had no previous experience in creating content were very welcome.
