In case you haven’t heard, the NNLM’s second Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, focusing on Women’s Health, is happening tomorrow! We really hope you will join us, as an editor, learner, observer, cheerleader, or whatever role fits for you. (If you want to edit, be sure to sign up for a Wikipedia account if you don’t have one, and if you want to tweet, the hashtag is #citenlm2018 )
As an extra inducement, during the shift hosted by the NNLM-PNR, 3-5 PM Pacific Time, we will feature Wikipedian Monika Sengul-Jones. We’re all lucky to have her as a knowledgeable, energetic, generous, and exciting presence during this time!
So, this is our Wikipedia project page, which has most of the information you’ll need, including the WebEx information (since this is an all-online event):
And, you’ll see a GoogleDoc link there, which will connect you to a wide range of Women’s Health resources you can check in with, as well as a great grid that has options for which Wikipedia pages might need more work than others.
Finally, if you want more training in advance, check out the recordings here (due to technical glitches the third one isn’t up yet!):
There was also a great training last spring:
Hopefully all this will get you started– we’re so excited some of you will be participating! And, keep the questions coming! (Email me, Ann Glusker, at glusker (AT) uw.edu)
