Kurdish language Wikihow

Here’s a resource for the University of Duhok. Wikihow is a website where people can post how-to manuals. It has a Kurdish language page.

Rather than have my manual translated into Kurdish, I hope that some people at University of Duhok will be able to post short articles describing individual resources on Wikihow. For example, here are some tasks that might require a bit of learning:

  1. how to register for IVSL access
  2. how to access JSTOR through IVSL
  3. how to find a course syllabus at MIT Open Courseware
  4. how to run a quick query at the World Bank WDI site
  5. how to use Google Scholar
  6. how to write footnotes/bibliographies with Zotero or Endnote
  7. how to install R on your computer

I’m sure you can think of more.

I can’t write these in Kurdish, but I bet the students at UOD can.
