Volunteer, Open Access to Mass History Event
posted September 25, 2013 4:15 PM
The Center for the History of Medicine at Harvard Medical School is collaborating with other special collections throughout Massachusetts to serve as a host site for Open Access to Mass History, a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon taking place during Open Access Week, October 21-26. On Tuesday, October 22, from 9-2, volunteers will be working with Center staff to build history of medicine Wiki content around Center collections. The event will take place at the Countway Library (just down the street from Simmons!) and includes a Wikipedia editing tutorial by a seasoned Wikipedian and tours of the Center and the Warren Anatomical Museum.
We are currently enlisting volunteers to write and edit Wikipedia entries on topics related to Massachusetts and the history of medicine. All levels and experience welcome! Novice and expert Wikipedians, budding and seasoned researchers, etymologists and endocrinologists: Join us!
