What to expect
JOIN US! AWA+D and the Kappe Library at SCI-Arc are hosting a Women in Architecture #wikiD writing workshop, a global campaign for improving and increasing Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of women in architecture and the built environment.
Wikipedia training begins the workshop on how to write and edit Wikipedia entries, followed by entry writing.
Bring your laptop, power cord, and published information (bio, books, articles, etc.) about women whom you would like to write about. If you don't already have information, don't worry -- you may use the Kappe Library resources to do research! Please create a Wikipedia account before attending! In the past, there have been issues when a lot of people in one location create usernames. Wikipedia thinks it spam and doesn’t like it!
List of articles to edit
Below is a list of articles that would benefit from edits and expansion during the edit-a-thon, but you are welcome to work on anything you like.
