Wikipedia edit-a-thon: African American history in North Carolina

On March 30, the North Carolina Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Wilson Library will host its second Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Participants will meet in Wilson Library and use collection materials to create, update, and improve articles about people, places, events, and organizations associated with African American history in North Carolina.

Everyone is welcome, even if you’ve never edited Wikipedia before. Staff will be on hand to help you find books and articles on topics that interest you, and to help you with Wikipedia edits.

Refreshments will be provided and tours of Wilson Library will be given throughout the event.

The event is open from 1:00pm to 4:30pm. Feel free to arrive and leave whenever it suits you.

Please bring a laptop if possible.
