In honour of National Medical Librarians Month, join us as we improve medical information in Wikipedia. You can edit as little or as much as you'd like. It's a great opportunity to learn new skills and lend your knowledge to this vast encyclopedia.
We invite you to edit the week of October 17-21. LITS will be hosting a Wikipedia editing tutorial/refresher on October 13 via Zoom led by Alex Jung from the University of Toronto.
Follow these simple steps to start:
1. Create a free account on Wikipedia, if you already have an account - proceed to step 2.
2. Register on LITS' campaign dashboard
3. Find an article that needs editing.
4. Cite a source.
TA DA! You have edited a document and participated in our edit-a-thon. Keep going!
