After being inspired by Ewan McAndrew at Wikimania, I’ve taken a crack at doing my own video about importing books from the Internet Archive into Wikisource:

There are a few mistakes here, and as I’ve yet to figure out how to edit videos properly (I’ve only managed to hang my video editing software so far), they’ve stayed in; I’ll do another video correcting things.

The pagelist creation process is probably the hardest bit for beginners to Wikisource, and it’s something we need to work on. Metadata copying, on the other hand, mostly works fine (of course, we should not be copying the metadata, but that’s another story).
