Native American Artists Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon
Join us in honoring Native American artists whose work is represented in Mia’s collections by writing or enhancing Wikipedia articles. In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, this event is a great way to make new friends, have fun, and learn something new, while adding content about Native American artists to Wikipedia, the world’s largest online encyclopedia.
No Wikipedia experience necessary. Social hour with refreshments begins at 11 a.m., edit-a-thon at noon. Brief training session at 12:20 p.m. for newcomers. Library resources will be on hand. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas.
Presented by the Library Affinity Group.
