Event Description

Your research skills can help make Wikipedia a better, evidence-based resource for people looking for information on women’s health. This is our third Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon and the first with a health focus. The US National Network of Libraries of Medicine are spearheading this initiative and you can join in or follow along on twitter with the hashtag #citeNLM2018

The session will begin with a brief presentation and discussion about Wikipedia followed by a learning session on Wikipedia editing. Participants will then embark in an edit-a-thon working with the aid of facilitators. Participants work independently or in groups to locate and update/edit pages and citations. You must bring a laptop to the session and create a Wikipedia user account prior to the event to be able to participate.
Wednesday, November 7/10–11:30 a.m.
