Wiki Women’s History Month Project

Digital Training Lab, 1st Floor Lehman Hall


Sponsored by The Barnard Center for Research on Women and Barnard Library & Academic Information Services (BLAIS).

Add your voice to the world’s largest source of collaboratively-curated knowledge!
Wikipedia is often the first stop when people are looking to learn about a new topic, but around 85% of Wikipedia editors are men, and it’s sorely lacking in women’s history and representations. In honor of women’s history month, we’ll gather and learn how to edit Wikipedia articles and work together on creating and improving articles related to women’s history.
No prior knowledge is necessary! Librarians will be on hand with resources and suggestions. Wikipedia is perhaps best edited by those who are not "experts." Although you are welcome to focus on a topic you are knowledgeable and/or passionate about, you can contribute key information with no previous experience on the subject.
Computers, topics and references will be provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own. Find out more about the Wikipedia Women’s History Project here.
