Wikithon: “Old” and “New” Loughborough

Nov 14 2020 12:00 - 15:00

This Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon will help local people to connect with their past, through a well-structured activity that necessitates only basic digital skills. In the first hour you will hear all about the Open Access movement and learn all about how to edit a Wikipedia entry. In hours two and three you will have the chance to create or edit a page about a figure associated with Loughborough. We will help suggest suitable figures or you can come to the session with a person in mind. We’d like to focus in particular on neglected women in Loughborough’s history. You’ll leave with new skills you can use on subjects, figures, and events of your choosing in the future.

IMPORTANT NOTE. This event will now take place online. Ticket holders will be emailed a link to connect to the event the day before it is held.
