Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon @ UVic
Mon, 3 April 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM PDT
Are you curious about Wikipedia? Interested to know what the intersections between the university and Wikipedia are? On April 3rd, the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) and UVic Libraries will host a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon from 1pm-3.30pm in rooms A003 and A025 of the McPherson Library, where participants will learn how to edit the global, online encyclopedia Wikipedia.
This event is free of charge and open to UVic students, staff, faculty, librarians, administrators, and the general public. Edit-a-thon participants are kindly asked to bring a laptop and to register. Participants are welcome to bring their own material to contribute to Wikipedia, or else to draw resources from the UVic Libraries. Please let us know if there is a specific subject matter or artifact from Special Collections that you would like to work with so that the archivists may have it on hand for you on the day of.
