The Princeton University Archives is hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon on the theme of Women at Princeton!

WHO: Interested University community members (undergraduates, graduate students, alumni/ae, professors, staff, community). Limited to 15 participants; please RSVP before Wednesday, 16 May 2012.

WHAT: Creating and expanding existing Wikipedia pages about the history of women at Princeton as faculty members, wives, visitors, and students; and on the history of coeducation at Princeton. Participants will set up individual Wikipedia accounts, learn how to write an article, and then use University Archives resources to write and edit articles.

WHEN: Saturday, 19 May 2012, 12:30 P.M.-4:00 P.M. Lunch and snacks (with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options) will be provided. Afterward, several of us will go out to a local wiki-dinner at 5:00 P.M.

WHERE: Wiess Lounge, Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library (next to Sherrerd Hall and across from the Friend Center on the Princeton University campus).

WHY: To increase the number of pages on Wikipedia about the history and roles of women at Princeton and to help close the Wikipedia Gender Gap.

OTHER: Please bring your laptop since you will be asked to create a Wikipedia account if you do not already have an account (you are not required to have an account before participating).

IMPORTANT: Please RSVP by adding your name to the list below AND emailing mudd AT princeton DOT edu before Wednesday, 16 May 2012 because space is limited.

After the joys of editathoning, diehards will conclude the day with a 5pm Nassau Sushi wiki-dinner, located at the edge of the Princeton campus (in between, from 4-5pm we'll probably take an impromptu campus tour and possibly visit the Princeton Cemetery or the Evelyn College for Women site).
