Wikipedia is a reference tool everybody uses and anybody can edit. However, articles on Wikipedia are skewed by a lack of diversity in editors. Meriam Library is going to do our part to counter systemic bias and improve Wikipedia. We will gather to update pages about Black history, art, culture, politics, economics, and other related topics.
This is a gathering for anyone: seasoned contributors and newbies who want to learn. Anyone can contribute, no Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers as needed. Reference materials and computers will be available for use.
If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you can create a user profile and get a head start with this training module. If you can, please familiarize yourself with the WikiProject Countering systemic bias; please refer to Wikipedia: Five pillarsand familiarize yourself with the guidelines related to behavior, content, and editing.
Or! Just show up and we can help get you started!
