Remote Participation[edit]

There are ways to participate remotely! We'll be updating the topic list in real time, with editors signing next to articles they're working on, so anyone with a Wikipedia account can log on and do the same. We'll be available during the event for comments and questions on library chat. You also can direct message us with reference questions. We welcome remote participants, and hope these options will allow you to participate!
