Join us at the Lamar Soutter Library on Wednesday, November 20. We are hosting a live Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in conjunction with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine's online #citeNLM event. Stop by the library computer room between 11:00 AM-1:00 PM for editing and treats. Learn how to set up a Wikipedia account, and learn how to add citations with credible sources to Wikipedia articles that need them. The best part?
