Friday, March 8, 3-5 pm, Knight Library Browsing Room: Sarah Stierch, who trained as a fellow at the Wikimedia Foundation, will lead a Wikipedia editors’ workshop to help participants understand Wikipedia’s criteria for notability and the process for creating new entries or editing existing Wikipedia pages.
Saturday, March 9, 1-4 pm, 141 Allen Hall: This workshop will be devoted to putting our new skills to the test and creating Wikipedia entries on women from history, art, literature, music, education, politics, government, social movements, science, and technology, and more. Groups from around the world who are also engaged in this effort will join us live via Google hangouts.
Check out some of the entries we’ll be working on at the Saturday event and please feel free to add additional entries.
Both events are free and open to the public. The events are sponsored by CSWS, the ASUO Women’s Center, the UO Libraries, and the School of Journalism and Communication.
