Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

This Thursday there’s a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in the UCR Rivera Library.

October 16th, 10am-4pm, room 403 in the Rivera Library (4th floor)

I’ve always wanted to get more into Wikipedia, and over the last week or so I finally started editing and adding information. Through the digital humanities group DHSoCal I learned about the work of Adrianne Wadewitz, who was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Digital Learning and Research at Occidental College. Sadly though, she passed away recently.

This video from Wadewitz’s Wikipedia page is really great for showing why faculty and students should become active Wikipedians:

And if you’re interested in coming, send me an email and we can head over there together: sande010@ucr.edu
