Description

Join the UNLV University Libraries for "Decolonizing Wikipedia: An edit-a-thon to Strengthen the Representation of Indigenous People and Communities".

Inspired by Native American Heritage Month, the UNLV University Libraries are hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon focused on Indigenous People and Communities in the Americas.

A Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is an event where people come together to help build the world’s most popular online research tool. People of all identities are welcome to participate. It's a great way to do your part to improve Wikipedia and begin to acquire new skills.

No previous Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; training and resources will be provided. Feel free to bring your own laptop.

RSVP encouraged and snacks will be provided.

If you have questions, please contact Chelsea Heinbach, Teaching and Learning Librarian at chelsea.heinbach@unlv.edu.
