Save the Date: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Calling all Wikibrarians!

 As information professionals, we know Wikipedia is immensely valuable as a platform on which to freely access information and collaboratively create knowledge. Wikipedia is a highly trafficked source for information, including health information, and our ethical and professional responsibilities are to ensure health professionals, patients, and patrons have access to high-quality, reliable health information. The National Library of Medicine is continuing our efforts to improve the information contained in Wikipedia health and medicine articles. 

 

On May 6, 2019 at the Medical Library Association and virtually across the country, we are hosting our third Wikipedia edit-a-thon. For tutorials & more information, visit https://nnlm.gov/nnlm-wikipedia-edit-thon-training. We encourage you to register for your Wikipedia account now to be ready for May, & tweet using #CiteNLM and #MLANet19!
