Event Details

A Wikipedia Edit-a-thon can bring together professionals from GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) institutions and Wikipedians to generate and improve Wikipedia content using and linking back to institutional holdings. Edit-a-thons are fun, informal, and productive ways for librarians, archivists, and others to learn about Wikipedia, and to introduce the Wikipedia community to a library’s collections. Join us for this informal session designed for librarians who want create a proactive and productive relationship with Wikipedia. Participants can use this time to create an account, learn the basics of editing, and work through common Wikipedia editing issues that may be difficult to resolve alone such as notability and conflict of interest. Those who are already comfortable editing Wikipedia can help improve articles related to librarianship. RBMSLibrary catalog, and ACRL all need your help!
