The next NNLM #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon will take place on April 30, focusing on articles related to Preventive Health and Wellness. During the all-day online event, you are invited to add citations and content to Wikipedia articles using trusted National Library of Medicine resources such as MedlinePlus, PubMed, and Genetics Home Reference. Participants can follow the hashtag #citeNLM on Twitter throughout the day to ask questions, post photos, and share personal experiences. Librarians, educators, and other aspiring Wikipedians can also join the spring campaign by hosting an event for their students, faculty, or communities.

Check out the recording of the April 2 hands-on training to learn more!

In this one-hour webinar, presenters reviewed:

  • The role of Wikipedia and the importance of edit-a-thons
  • Participating in the #citeNLM Virtual Edit-a-thon by joining the event dashboard
  • How to become a Wikipedia editor
  • Citing NLM resources and best practices for editing articles on medical and health topics
  • Hosting your own in-person event anytime in April using the #citeNLM Guide for Organizers
