#citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Last October, Penn Libraries observed Health Literacy Month by participating in the National Library of Medicine's #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to edit child and maternal health-related pages on Wikipedia, an open-source online encyclopedia that has become one of the world's most popular websites. On March 31st, we plan to recreate this experience by editing healthy aging-related pages. No prior experience with Wikipedia is necessary for this volunteer activity. There are two ways to participate:
- Option #1: This is asychronous virtual volunteer activity that you can do on a computer with Internet access. Set aside some time on Wednesday March 31st (or any day of your choice). Follow the instructions available here.
- Option #2: Join the National Library of Medicine's virtual live Edit-a-thon on Wednesday March 31st from 1pm to 3pm Eastern Time. Register here for the live editing session.
