Abstract

How can we improve our coverage of historic madia. Google will give us hundreds of options, but which can even be used on Wikipedia? Are there consistent sources for historic media? And once we have it, what's best procedure for preparing it and uploading it?

A guide with over three hundred restorations of historical media that have reached Featured Picture status on English Wikipedia will walk you through, teaching you how to find the best images for your topic, and how the various Featured Picture processes allow you to share your passions with the world.
