November 20 #CiteNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons on Mental Health

Posted Nov 12, 2019 by Franda Liu

The NNLM Fall 2019 #CiteNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons on Mental Health will be held virtually all day on Wednesday, November 20.  Come help us improve the sources and quality of health information by adding citations and content from trusted National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources to Wikipedia articles.  Wikipedia is one of the most popular websites on the internet frequently visited 7 billion times per year for people seeking health information.

One of the NLM’s strategic goals is “to reach more people in more ways through enhanced dissemination and engagement pathways.” To help reach this goal, the NNLM holds biannual #CiteNLM Wikipedia “edit-a-thons,” aimed at adding citations to NLM resources in order to improve the credibility and content of existing Wikipedia articles. By leveraging NNLM members’ expertise in this cooperative campaign, we can make it easier to get credible, evidence-based health information online and increase the reach of NLM resources. Make sure to engage with us on social media using the project hashtag #CiteNLM.
