Women in Natural History Wikipedia Editing Workshop
Join us for the Women in Natural History Wikipedia Editing Workshop hosted by the Biodiversity Heritage Library and Smithsonian Libraries with support from Wikimedia DC.
With the help of experienced Wikipedians, attendees will learn to edit Wikipedia and improve or create Wikipedia articles related to women in natural history, drawing on the Biodiversity Heritage Library's free and extensive online collections as source materials. No editing experience is necessary.
Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing email@example.com.
