Women in Science Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Tuesday November 15, 11am-4pm
Special Collections (Central Library)
Lunch provided

The library is hosting a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon focused on developing, improving, and updating articles about women and science.  Join us in learning and writing about women scientists, explorers, and their work in STEM. 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 (Central Library) from 11AM to 4PM.

Look for many more Edit-A-Thon events throughout the year. Thanks for sharing this with your students and colleagues. Please contact mary.a.caton@vanderbilt.edu for more information.
