Wikisource is the largest collaborative digital library and one of the sister projects of Wikipedia and is primarily used to transcribe public domain texts as well as relicensed works. In past years, we have seen Wikisource growing into the core infrastructure for some of the marginalized language communities and I hope to share some of these interesting stories and I also hope to collaborate with the larger Open Source community to improve the platform so that perhaps, even cooler things like transcribing audio-visual culture can be done on Wikisource.
