Join us for Nanaimo and VIU’s second Wikipedia Edit-a-thon & Community of Practice Meetup! VIU Library has collaborated with CIEL and the Faculty of Education for an afternoon of editing and improving Wikipedia content. No previous editing skills or Wikipedia knowledge required — all skill levels from the novice, to the more experienced Wikipedians, are encouraged to take part. We’ll cover the basics of editing on this platform, address underrepresentation, and get to work editing live content on Wikipedia.

Please register here: https://libguides.viu.ca/editathon (it helps us know how much food & drink to order). Registration is free and all are welcome to attend -- VIU faculty, staff, students, and community!

Date: Thursday, November 15, 2018
Time: Noon to 3pm
Location: Royal Arbutus Room (Building 300)

* Drop in, or stay for the whole event!
* Bring a laptop and power cord with you if you can (we'll have extra laptops available at the event)
* Snacks and refreshments will be provided throughout to help fuel our editing!
