Throughout the month of November, the library invites the community to join a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. The goal is to improve the quality of articles on preventive health care and wellness-related topics by adding citations to reliable health information sources. Our local event is part of a larger campaign led by the Network of the National Library of Medicine (#citeNLM). We've put together some resources to enable interested would-be editors to jump in and start adding citations to articles:
This activity can be as individual and self-paced as participants would like, but stay tuned for more information about a virtual workshop and group editing opportunities in November. If you're interested in incorporating this activity into any of your classes, please let us know -- we'd be happy to assist!
