Black History Wikipedia and Wikidata Edit-a-Thon: York University Libraries Edit-a-thon session
Representation matters: not just on our screens, but in the information and data we share. During Black History Month, join us for a drop-in, beginner-friendly editing session to learn more and to help improve coverage of Black histories in Wikipedia and Wikidata. No experience necessary!
For the week of Valentine’s Day, join us in especially celebrating and improving digital knowledge on a theme of Black love & joy.
Date: Wednesday, February 15, 2023
Location: Scott Library, Atrium
Time: Drop-in anytime between 11am-3pm, whether you have 15 minutes or a couple hours.
This event is part of a larger Wikipedia and Wikidata editing campaign. Every Friday in February, join your library for facilitated editing sessions on Zoom: you can learn the basics or get a refresher on editing Wikipedia and Wikidata, then learn and write alongside others who are passionate about improving digital coverage of Black histories and experiences. Register for the kick-off event and weekly editing sessions. You can also join the event and edit at your own pace throughout the month. For full details, visit the event page. This event is a joint effort by library and archives staff and students at Toronto Metropolitan University, Toronto Public Library, University of Toronto, and York University.
