Abstract

Writing African American History into Wikipedia

On February 8, 2019, we hosted our library's first Wikipedia Editathon. In parternship with the non-profit, AfroCROWD, the three-hour event focused on "Editing African American History into Wikipedia." The event was coordinated by two librarians and one archivist from Oregon State University Libraries. This poster describe the planning process, promotional activities, and event activities. Finally, we hope we can inspire other libraries to partner with AfroCROWD to host their own Wikipedia Editathon. (AfroCrowd.org)
