Wikithon: ‘Old’ and ‘New’ Loughborough

14 November, 2020, 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is an online event.

This Wikipedia edit-a-thon invites Loughborough locals to connect with their past and neglected figures from the town’s history.

The first hour will showcase the importance of Wikipedia as a digital resource. Participants will learn about the Open Access movement and all about how to edit a Wikipedia entry. In the second part participants will be invited to produce a new page for Wikipedia about a figure associated with Loughborough – pick from pre-selected figures or come along with someone in mind. The session will focus in particular on neglected women in Loughborough’s history. Come away with new skills for use on subjects, figures, and events of your choosing in the future.
