On-Line Welcome and Tutorial : Wiki4Year of Sound 2020

rescheduled from 13 May 2020

For the International Year of Sound the National Hearing Conservation Association is supporting a campaign to improve Wikipedia articles related to sound. This on-line activity is replacing the planned workshops. It will be held 2-3 pm New York time. The goal is to promote acoustics by providing freely accessible information to all. In the webinar we will present the basics of how to improve Wikipedia articles and review a list of existing Wikipedia articles pertaining to acoustics. We will also provide information on how to translate Wikipedia articles with suggestions for acoustics-related articles to be translated and how one can donate images and other media to the open access repository Wiki Commons. We would love to hear your suggestions or questions. Join with Google Meet, at
