Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

21 November, 2015 (All day)
Senate House London

As part of this year's Being Human Festival we have teamed up with our colleagues in Senate House Library and British History Online to run a day-long workshop with Wikipedia. This Wikipedia edit-a-thon allows those taking part to create and enhance local history Wikipedia articles using VCH and British History Online materials. Using these texts as source material for Wikipedia articles continues the revelation process that begins by bringing archival material to print with the red books and then into digital format on BHO.

Training will be provided on the day so come along and join us in learning a new skill and help us to improve local history's coverage on Wikipedia.

Events will also be taking place in Leicester and Gloucester on the same day. All events are free to attend but please sign up via Eventbrite
