Adding media to Wikimedia Commons, and location on Monday, November 30

On Monday, November 30 we will meet in G603 for the entire class meeting. The room has computers so come prepared to make progress on your group’s contribution to the Wikipedia article or the OpenLab site.

Any images (photographs, sketches, maps) used in the Wikipedia article should be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons first. Use your Wikipedia username & password to log in, then upload your files. Be aware that once your images are a part of Wikimedia Commons, it can be used by others in Wikipedia or elsewhere, depending on what license you assign to it.

This infographic explains what is permissible to upload:
