Summary

  • Wikipedia is made up of people just like you: students, professors, and everyday experts and fans. With about 10,000 articles added to Wikipedia each week, there are plenty of opportunities to join this global community. How Wikipedia Works explains how you can make the Web's go-to source for information even better. You'll learn the skills required to use and contribute to the world's largest reference work-like what constitutes good writing and research and how to work with images and templates. Instead of wondering where to begin, the question will be "How far will you go?"
