The Jean and Alexander Heard Library at Vanderbilt University is hosting an Edit-A-Thon focused on developing, improving, and updating Wikipedia articles about the built environment of Nashville. Join us in learning and writing about our city and its architects, monuments, and public spaces. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of Wikipedia editing in a festive, collaborative, thematically focused environment.
All are welcome. No specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. Introductory training on the basics of Wikipedia editing will be given throughout the edit-a-thon.
Lunch will be provided. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will have library resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand. We’ll edit in Special Collections from 11AM to 4PM.
Look for many more Edit-A-Thon events throughout the year.
