Participate in the Virtual #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Posted by on April 2nd, 2020 Posted in: Health Information, National Library of Medicine News

Wikipedia’s health topics pages are visited a staggering 7 billion times a year, making it possibly the world’s most popular health information resource. The objective of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine’s (NNLM) #citeNLM campaign is to improve the credibility and content of medical and health-related articles on Wikipedia by adding citations and information from National Library of Medicine (NLM) sources. Participate virtually in NNLM’s spring edit-a-thon, where we’ll be editing articles on preventative health and wellness, on April 30, 2020.
