The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' Freel Library is hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Wednesday, November 20, in conjunction with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine's #citeNLM event. Stop by the library; set up a Wikipedia account, if you don't have one; and learn how to add citations to credible sources of mental health information to Wikipedia articles that need them.

The National Library of Medicine has a strategic goal to “reach more people in more ways through enhanced dissemination and engagement pathways.” To help reach this goal, the NNLM holds biannual #citeNLM Wikipedia “edit-a-thons,” editing campaigns aimed at adding citations to NLM resources in order to improve the credibility and content of existing Wikipedia articles. By improving theses articles, we can make it easier to get credible, evidence-based health information online and increase the reach of NLM resources. The focus of the fall 2019 edit-a-thon is mental health.
