The next virtual National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon will take place on November 20, 2019. During the all-day online event, we invite you to add citations and content to Wikipedia articles using trusted National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources like MedlinePlus, PubMed, and Genetics Home Reference. Participants can follow the hashtag #citeNLM on Twitter throughout the day to ask questions, post photos, and share personal experiences. You can also join our fall campaign by hosting an event at your institution. Visit the #citeNLM project page for more information.

In this one-hour webinar, presenters will give an overview of:

  • The role of Wikipedia and the importance of edit-a-thons
  • Participating in the #citeNLM Virtual Edit-a-thon by joining the event dashboard
  • How to become a Wikipedia editor
  • Citing NLM resources and best practices for editing articles on medical and health topics
  • Hosting your own event using the #citeNLM Guide for Organizers
