Wikipedia edit-a-thon: dissidents, suffragists and freedom fighters

April 28 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Wikipedia is a unique information resource and the world’s fifth largest website – but it doesn’t know everything! Join us in The National Archives’ library as we literally rewrite history and improve the free encyclopaedia’s coverage of campaigners and activists through the ages. Starting with a crash course in editing for beginners, we will use the library’s collections to produce new articles on neglected heroines and heroes from around the world. This is a drop-in event. Booking is not essential, but please register if you intend to come so we can gauge numbers. Coats and bags are not be permitted at this event, and must be left in our free lockers on the ground floor.

Free but book ahead.
