Sponsored by the Department of Information Science, Dalhousie Libraries is hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in the Ko’jua Okuom on Thursday, June 20 for Indigenous History Month!

An edit-a-thon is an event where editors and users edit and improve a specific topic or type of content. The focus of the edit-a-thon is Mi’kmaki and Mi’kmaw People and there will be a pre-selected range of biographies, books, and events to add.

There will be instruction sessions by Stacy Allison-Cassin from 11–11:45 a.m. and from 1:30–2:15 p.m.

You are welcome to stay and participate the entire day or come and go as are available.

Refreshments will be provided.
