Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Are you interested in raising the profile of Asian and Asian American who are notable enough to be included on Wikipedia but are missing from the internet encyclopedia?

Join our in-person ‘Edit-a-thon’ from 11am to 2 p.m., April 11, on the Mezzanine at O’Leary Library.

Research and write an entry for one of the people we’ve identified as good candidates for an entry on Wikipedia — or come with an idea of your own. If you’re looking for a smaller task, you can improve one of the active pages we’ve identified.

Mentors will be on hand to help you find sources and edit content and snacks and prizes will be available to our the editors! No experience required. We'll have pizza, snacks, and drinks to help you work.

This year’s event is sponsored at UML by the Center for Asian American Studies, the Center for Women and Work, and the University Library.
