International Women's Day Wikipedia training & editathon
Thursday, 08 March 2018, 10.30am to 2pm
At Oxfordshire County Library, Makerspace, first floor, Westgate, Queen Street, Oxford OX1 1DJ.
Wikipedia is the 5th most visited web site in the world; but is it biased?
Join us on International Women's Day in the new Makerspace at the Oxfordshire County Library. We'll have a short talk on the gender gap on Wikipedia, learn how to edit, and then work on improving articles about and of interest to women!
If you are planning on attending the editathon, please bring a laptop. If you don't have a laptop please let us know in advance and we may be able to provide one.
Drop in anytime. Light refreshments provided. Accompanied children and infants are welcome to the event.
