Event description

Description

This event is part of Digital Literacy Week at Toronto Public Library, a week long celebration of Toronto's digital skills and technology capabilities.




All are welcome, no experience editing Wikipedia needed!

Hands-on workshop to improve Wikipedia pages about Toronto's history, with a focus on our city's timeline. Verify and cite dates, simply copy edit or add events — an oppurtunity for underrepresented histories to be represented.

Opening remarks and basic training by University of Toronto's Wikipedian in Residence. Library books and databases available for research.


Important Info

Before attending, please create a Wikipedia account (Wikipedia restricts multiple account creations from a single location on a single day).

  • Computers available, but feel free to bring your own laptop
  • You're welcome to leave early
