#1Lib1Ref Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for UK Libraries faculty and staff

Friday, March 15, 2019

10:00 am - 2:00 pm (drop in for a bit or stay the duration)

William T. Young Library, B-108C

 

Come for the refreshments and stay for the thrill of editing!  

If you have a laptop, bring it!  If not, don’t let that stop you from attending.  We will have an extra one for you to use or suggest you buddy up with someone who has a laptop.

This is not a training workshop.  This is 100% hands-on, learning while doing.  It doesn’t matter if you are completely new to editing Wikipedia or if you are a superstar editor.  There will be a lot of activities for everyone!


What is #1Lib1Ref?

Imagine a World where Every Librarian Added One More Reference to Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is one of the first stops for readers and researchers. Let's make it better! The goal is for each librarian to add at least one reference to Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide. When you edit, make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in the edit summary.

The #1Lib1Ref campaign is supported by Wikipedia Library, a group of dedicated volunteers and Wikimedia Affiliates around the world. We also work closely with local library networks to promote the campaign. The campaign runs multiple times per year (January and May), and you can organize events any time that works for you!
