Join the Virtual #CiteNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon!

Posted by on March 18th, 2021 Posted in: Citizen Science, Consumer Health, Health Literacy

Since 2018, the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) has been holding bi-annual #CiteNLM Edit-a-thons to improve the credibility and content of medical and health-related articles on Wikipedia. This month, join us for a fun live event that makes getting started with editing Wikipedia a breeze!

On Wednesday, March 31 from 1-3 PM ET, join your colleagues and NNLM staff for a live editing session as we work to add citations and content to Wikipedia articles related to healthy aging. Held via Zoom, participants will engage in large group and breakout sessions to chat about Wikipedia, edit articles, and connect with the #CiteNLM community. No prior experience required – staff will be on hand to answer any questions and provide live demonstrations to get you started.

To register for the event, please visit: https://nnlm.gov/Zap
