African Women in History: A Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon for the Year of Global Africa  (Academic)


Join us in the MSU Main Library for a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon as a part of MSU's Year of Global Africa ( An edit-a-thon is an organized event to improve coverage of particular topics on Wikipedia. This event will focus on creating and improving Wikipedia articles about notable women in various fields from all regions of Africa, with emphasis on important women who currently lack Wikipedia articles. Both new and experienced Wikipedia contributors are welcome. Experienced editors will be on hand to assist new editors-no experience is necessary! An edit-a-thon is a great way for new Wikipedia editors to learn the basics of contributing to Wikipedia, and for Wikipedia contributors to meet one another. Reference sources and refreshments will be provided!
