More Editors and More Edits - A Look at #citeNLM2018

Posted Nov 30, 2018 by Franda Liu

On November 7, 2018, NNLM successfully hosted its second Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Building on the success of the first edit-a-thon in April, more than 50 editors, including first-time editors and newly minted women’s health experts across the nation, from Delaware to Utah and Wisconsin to Hawaii, made a total of 555 edits on 161 women’s health articles. Edited articles have since been viewed over 1 million times. Participants were active on Twitter, using #CiteNLM2018 to connect with others and share their contributions. Many thanks to all participants and to the NNLM team who hosted live demos and engaged colleagues and students on university and hospital campuses throughout the day of the edit-a-thon. 
 
We hope to continue our work on Wikipedia and invite you to edit health articles not only on edit-a-thon days, but throughout the year. We provide editing resources on our WikiProject page. You can also view NNLM training videos created for the edit-a-thon. Share your editing story with fellow librarians and with NNLM. Keep an eye out for news about our next edit-a-thon in 2019.
