Join the UNLV University Libraries on Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 3-6 p.m. in the Amargosa Room at Lied Library for our next Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon event, "From Stonewall to Selena: Strengthening the Representation of LGBTQ+ and Latinx Folx in Wikipedia," inspired by Latinx Heritage Month and Las Vegas LGBTQ+ PRIDE Month. The edit-a-thon event is focused on increasing the representation of Latinx and LGBTQ+ people on Wikipedia.
A Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is an event where people come together to help build the world’s most popular online research tool. People of all identities are welcome to participate. It's a great way to do your part to improve Wikipedia with your existing subject knowledge and begin to acquire new skills. No previous Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; training and resources will be provided. Feel free to bring your own laptop.
An RSVP is encouraged but not required to attend, and snacks will be provided. This event is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and the community.
If you have questions, please contact Chelsea Heinbach, Teaching and Learning Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
