African Librarians Week (#AfLibWk)

14 May 2023 26 May 2023 UTC

#AfLibWk is an annual #1Lib1Ref campaign led by the African Library and Information Associations and Institutions (AfLIA). This week-long virtual campaign engages the African library community to fill key gaps in African content by adding trust-worthy references to articles about Africa on the online encyclopedia (Wikipedia) and adding African bibliographic information to the largest collaborative linked open database (Wikidata).

Similar to previous campaigns, this AfLibWk 4.0 will award top contributors. Learn more about the prizes and the regional champions (librarians who lead the campaign in their countries) here: https://web.aflia.net/introducing-champions-for-the-4th-african-librarians-week-1lib1ref-campaign/
