Hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in Your Library


In this webinar, you will learn the basics for holding a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in your library. Edit-a-thons are a great programming activity for adults, or an opportunity to partner with a local organization. The presenter will share what worked and what didn’t from two separate editing events.

Learning objectives:

  • Create/define a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
  • Prepare and plan for the event
  • Conduct and evaluate the event
