Game Changers: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Join us on March 30, 2017, to write women athletes into Wikipedia. Entries about women are underrepresented in Wikipedia, the world’s largest online source of information. We will write new entries about women athletes and women’s sports, supplement current entries, and begin to address the imbalance.

No previous experience writing Wikipedia entries is necessary. Wikipedia experts and research librarians from the Schlesinger Library will be available to help you write and edit your entries. A list of possible subjects, printed reference materials, and online resources will be provided to support the work. New ideas and resources are also welcome. We’ll focus our resources on women athletes, but this edit-a-thon is open to anyone wishing to create or edit entries about women.

Refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.
