Sources for material you have uploaded and transcribed.[edit]

Hi, You've contributed a lot of UN related material. Thanks :)

However, can I ask you to add 'source' details, such as the document reference numbers, or URLS where you took the text from?

This helps other researchers and academics using Wikisource to appropriately locate related documents and to include appropriate citations and footnotes when they use English Wikisource as a reference tool. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:11, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Absolutely! I will go back and cite all the UN General Assembly Resolutions I did as well as the three CIA NIS Reports.
Where would source links/URLs go? At the bottom of the page? JoeSolo22 (talk) 16:26, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Generally you leave a source link in the header, The notes field is the normal place, or more typically you put a fully completed {{textinfo}} box on the talk page. Don't forget to remove the {{no source}} from the transcription page, once you've done this. My understanding is that whilst you don't need to give a full Harvard or MLA style citation for things, giving more than just the basics, helps immensely. For weblinks it helps to add an access date, as well as the nominal publication date.

Thanks again! CIA NIS reports are sourced and I will work on the UN resolutions as well.
I appreciate someone catching this and letting me know. JoeSolo22 (talk) 17:23, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Welcome to English Wikisoruce[edit]

Thanks for the clarification.

You can also upload "freely licensed, approved for public release" versions, of documents to Commons. Generally other transcribers on English Wikisource prefer to work with scans, as it helps confirm what was actually written, and helps give context when trying to determine if an unusual wording or phrasing is genuine, or is an OCR/transcrition artefact.

If interested, on English Wikisource, there was also an extensive set of UN Treaty Series volumes. [[1]] which are backed by scans. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:35, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Per Help:Page status and Template:Missing image, pages with missing images should be marked “Problematic.” TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 19:24, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, appreciate it. I'll handle the rest of that for my stuff. I left a message on your talk page but this appears to be resolved, thanks. JoeSolo22 (talk) 19:29, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
