CANCELED – #1Lib1Ref Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
January 31 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
UPDATE: This event has been canceled due to extreme cold temperatures.
As part of this year’s #1Lib1Ref campaign, we invite our library colleagues both on and off campus to join us January 31 in an effort to improve Wikipedia.
- Share your knowledge
- Add references to existing pages
- Build new entries, or
- Locate open access versions of sources.
Our working theme will be topics and entries related to underrepresented groups, as those have the greatest need, but you are welcome to work on anything you’d like. Event leaders will be there to help new editors get started, and will share our own best practices document.
There are many resources available to help in editing Wikipedia. Here are a few pages to get you started.
