Information

We are starting off Science Literacy Week with a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon focused on adding more content to Wikipedia about Canadian Science and Scientists. In particular, we will focus on improving the content about UBC researchers and alumni. We are warmly inviting suggestions of UBC scientists - faculty, students, alumni, that we may work on improving their Wikipedia articles (adding citations) or creating articles in Wikipedia. Wikipedia editors use the following criteria to establish notability: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(people) BCIT, Douglas College, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and SFU will be hosting events at their libraries too. Please see our meet-up page for details: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/BC/SciLit17 Please bring your own laptop. No prior experience necessary! Thanks to BC Campus for the generous donation of pizza from Pie R Squared! Please send your questions and suggestions to Katherine Miller (http://directory.library.ubc.ca/people/view/740).
