Wikipedia-edit-a-thon: Women’s History
Wikipedia-edit-a-thons are events where experienced and new Wikipedian editors come together to help improve a specific topic or type of content on the online encyclopedia. Since March is Women’s History Month, it is an ideal theme for the workshop. Women’s History Month celebrates the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Basic training in how to become an editor for Wikipedia and a list of possible content to improve (from simple citations to new content in biographies, works of art, fictional or mythological characters, movements and issues, and more) will be provided. Attendees are also welcome to come with suggestions! Research materials will be provided. Bring your own laptop if possible as only a limited number will be available to borrow.
