Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that you can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries. As one of the web’s most visited reference sites, Wikipedia serves as a starting point for visitors who want to learn more about a variety of topics.

Join us for the DC Historic Sites Wikipedia Editing Workshop hosted by the DC Preservation League with support from Wikimedia DC. Attendees will learn to edit and create Wikipedia articles about historically significant sites and properties in the District of Columbia.

Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.
