Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Exploring Open Access

Explore open access scholarship from MIT and beyond

Event date October 27, 2017 1 - 4:30pm

Join us at MIT Libraries to celebrate Open Access Week 2017 by editing one of the largest open access projects – Wikipedia! Explore open access scholarship from MIT and beyond, including MIT dissertations and articles that are openly available. One source we’ll highlight is the MIT Libraries’ DSpace@MIT. Staff from the Libraries who are experienced Wikipedians will provide a short introduction to MIT open access resources and an overview of editing Wikipedia. They will be available to answer questions throughout the session. Drop in any time during the session, and come with questions and ideas for topics!
