Workshop @PCL: Indigenous Languages Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Perry-Castañeda Library

Wikipedia articles are the top search results for most languages, and yet many of these articles have few or no citations, are out of date, make no mention of community projects, and are incomplete. Students and other academics can use their access to university libraries and training with scholarly sources to share accurate and up-to-date knowledge on indigenous languages at the exact moment that people are searching for more information about them. This workshop will give participants the skills to work with Wikipedia to edit information about indigenous languages. This event is part of a larger #lingwiki initiative comprising edit-a-thons at multiple locations in honor of the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages. No previous experience editing Wikipedia is required.
