The Citing Sources Learning Project functions as a workshop on how to improve the quality of cited sources in WikiMedia projects. Citing sources is a basic skill for wiki editors. This is a support project for the Wikiversity Wikiversity:Service community.
- How to set up or participate in Wikiversity projects that seek to improve the cited sources for WikiMedia project articles.
- Single source verification. Making sure that a source really supports the statement made in a WikiMedia project article that cites that source.
- Multiple source verification. Just because a cited source makes a claim, that does not mean that the claim has a factual basis. Tracking claims made in sources to verifiable data.
- When are there too few or too many sources cited? How to start and run a campaign to find more sources. How to "off-load" and archive excess sources to Wikiversity.

- Tomaschwutz Seems to be a good idea of learning by doing: I want to learn about citing, so I can create an activity on my way of learning.
- Is this page still active? I'm doing a lot of APA-style citations at the moment and would like to share what I've learned so far. --BrienWest (discuss • contribs) 16:13, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
