Women on Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Saturday, March 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

In celebration of Women’s History Month, join RIT Libraries in improving the representation of women on Wikipedia by editing or writing entries about notable women or topics related to women.

No experience is necessary! RIT librarians and trained volunteers will teach you the fundamental principles and best practices of Wikipedia, how to create an account, and how to use Wikipedia’s editing tools. You may drop in for half an hour or longer; no need to stay all day. Refreshments will be provided.

The event is free and open to the public. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to participate. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Computers are limited, so please bring a laptop or tablet if you have one. Free Wi-Fi is available on site.
