The LuEsther T. Mertz Library of the New York Botanical Garden and the American Museum of Natural History welcome students and Wikipedia editors to participate in an Edit-a-thon focused on creating and enhancing pages related to the theme of Women in Science, highlighting female botanists, ecologists, horticulturists, and women working in related “green industries.”
Editors will use the vast historic collections of the Mertz Library in order to create and edit existing pages. Training will be provided for those who have no prior experience editing Wikipedia.
Interested attendees are invited on a tour of the library towards the end of this event.
