Looking Back at BAnQ’s Participation in Wikimania

BAnQ did itself proud at the Wikimania 2017 Conference, which took place from August 9 to 13 at Montréal’s Le Centre Sheraton. In addition to the international conference itself, highlighting the institution’s Wiki projects, and an information booth set up for the duration of the event, BAnQ also organized activities at its three Montréal buildings, which were attended by over 300 people.

BAnQ Vieux-Montréal hosted two First Nations’-themed workshops: a Scan-a-thon, where participants were able to digitize and upload archives, and an Edit-a-thon, where attendees could write, edit and improve Wikipedia content. The Edit-a-thon was hosted by Wikimedia Canada in partnership with Atikamekw Nation Council, the Manawan Atikamekw Council, the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), Rising Voices and Montréal Libraries. Guided tours of BAnQ Vieux-Montréal, BAnQ Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie and the Grande Bibliothèque were another popular feature of the five-day event.
