*LGBTQIA Wikipedia Editathon

Event detail
Add to my calendar
 

Want to learn how to edit Wikipedia? Are you an experienced Wikipedia editor wanting to make a local connection? Do you treasure the library’s LGBTQIA collection? Are you looking for opportunities to make a real impact on the way in which information is created?

Please join the San Francisco Public Library for an LGBTQIA Edit-a-thon to encourage diverse editorship and improve coverage of local LGBTQIA topics on Wikipedia.

Together we can work towards a goal of creating one new entry and expanding at least five existing entries to share with the world!

If you’re inexperienced – that’s ok! We will provide training for beginner Wikipedians and librarians will be available to assist contributors using the library’s collections as research sources. You are welcome to bring your own laptop and power cord. We will also have computers available for use in the library.

SFPL offers free computer and technology classes. Learn anything from computer comfort to coding! Sign up for our monthly e-newsletter and class schedule.

Gather, share knowledge and celebrate our unique identities at the queerest library ever. Visit the James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center, the gateway to the Library’s broader collections documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and allies’ history and culture, with a special emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area.
