Create Knowledge at Wikipedia Edit-a-thons

Updates, 3/28:

  • The Women in Science edit-a-thon has been changed back to April 12.
  • The Art + Feminism edit-a-thon will be April 20, not April 6.

March and April offer six chances to participate in Wikipedia edit-a-thons on a variety of topics. At each event, participants will make improvements to Wikipedia in a fun, collaborative environment.

Librarians, faculty, and library science students will be on hand to offer help with research and with Wikipedia editing. No experience is necessary; just bring your curiosity and a laptop. Refreshments will be provided.
