Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at Digital Humanities

All experience levels are welcome. Tables will be organized so that those interested in particular tasks (copyediting, wikifying, linking out to GLAM and DH resources, etc.) or articles (see ideas below) can team up. Adventurous souls can even start a new article. DHWI is delighted to partner with Melanie Kill of the Department of English at the University of Maryland to offer a Public DH Event: the Wikipedia DH Edit-A-Thon. We invite DHWI attendees—as well as Wikipedians and digital humanists in the DC region—to join us for an evening of Wikipedia editing. We’ll talk a bit about the core content policies of Wikipedia and guidelines relevant to contributing in one’s area of expertise, offer some tips and tricks for navigating the resources, and then get online and begin sharing our knowledge and skills. Please see http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/events/edit-a-thon/ for more information.

    The location is now the Hornbake Library, not the Student Union?
