This month we are calling on the expertise of students and staff here at Cambridge to bring underrepresented histories ‘out of the shadows’ and into the light on Wikipedia.

No prior Wiki experience is required! We will host an online training session at 11am on 17 May to get you started. This session will also be recorded and made available.

On 24 May we will host our edit-a-thon at the University Library. This will be a drop-in event where you can access support throughout the day to help improve and expand Wikipedia’s content. Hosted jointly by Doing History in Public, Cambridge University Libraries, and Cambridge Digital Humanities, with the assistance of Wikimedia UK, we hope to get as many new pages created and edits made as possible. Refreshments will also be provided to fuel your efforts.

If you cannot be in Cambridge on 24 May, we will also do our best to enable you to interact remotely. You can also follow updates on Twitter via the hashtag #OOTSwiki.

This event is being organised on behalf of the editors of the Doing History in Public collaborative blog, but is also open to other interested graduate students and staff at the University of Cambridge.
