Wikipedia edit-a-thon: create or improve Wikipedia articles about women scientists and their achievements.

This event is part of a series of events hosted by IT Services and the Bodleian Libraries to celebrate the bicentenary of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer.

Come along and find out how Wikipedia works and try your hand at basic wiki editing. You will learn how to create an article that will not be deleted, and find out more about working in the Wikipedian community. The session will also discuss the use of Wikipedia as a platform for learning and public engagement.
