Attending MAC 2019? Join NNLM for a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon!

Are you interested in helping to improve the 5th most visited website in the world? 

On Sunday, October 6 at 7:30 pm in Conference Room 504, join your colleagues from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) for a one-hour Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Using trusted National Library of Medicine resources like Genetics Home Reference, MedlinePlus, and PubMed we will work to add citations and improve the quality of mental health articles on Wikipedia. The best part? No previous experience is needed! Simply bring yourself and a computer to the session and get ready to edit.

If you plan to attend, please create a Wikipedia account and sign-up on the event dashboard. We recommend bringing a laptop computer but a tablet device also works well for editing. Last minute participants to the event are always welcome, and we will have extra electronic devices and staff on hand to get you started. 

See you in Durham!
