NYTM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
The NYTM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is your chance to contribute your textile knowledge and expertise by adding and editing articles in Wikipedia on topics related to textiles - their history, production and cultural importance.
Wikipedia is the 6th most visited website in the world, with over 5 million English language encyclopedia articles. Yet this heavily used reference and information source is sadly imbalanced when it comes to topics relating to textiles history, the fiber arts and surface design.
Please select at date - Tuesday, September 27th or Thursday, September 29th - and click the green "Register" button to register as a participant.
This event coordinated by the FIT Library and the FIT Texitle and Surface Design department.
