Come by the Tom of Finland Foundation Library on the 22nd of July to participate in our second wikipedia editathon!

The library will provide access to a unique collection for reference purposes, to edit and create Queer/LGBTQIA Wikipedia content.

 

 

There will be a world class Wikipedian (who was at the Wikipedia conference at the Alexandria Library in Egypt!) teaching the editing workshop, so for those of you who want to learn how to edit Wikipedia please arrive by 1:30pm.

All folks welcomed; BYO machine (laptop, tablet,smart phone, ipad, etc.). Please feel free to bring your own material to work from (books, articles, etc). There are books from the Foundation Library that folks can use, but if you have any specific subject/individual in mind please bring along the (secondary source) info and we will help you upload/edit to Wikipedia. 

1:00 – 5:00 pm
