Margaret Herrick Library
Beverly Hills, California 90211
On Saturday, November 5, from 11am to 4pm, the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library is partnering with online art magazine East of Borneo to host its 2nd annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. It will be a casual gathering for both newbies and experienced Wikipedia editors to improve Wikipedia entries about film.
Introductory Wikipedia training sessions will be held at 11 am and 1 pm.
The event will take place in the library reading room and participants will have access to select library resources. Light refreshments will be provided in the lobby.
Participants are encouraged to work on entries about underrepresented figures in film, but may select any topic they like. If you are looking for suggestions, a suggested work list, checked against the library’s Biography Files collection, will be available.
What you will need:
· A laptop
· If you do not already have one, please create a Wikipedia account before you arrive. You can create an account here.
· Please review the “What Not to Bring” list in the “Using the Library” section on Oscars.org. For this special event, we will allow cell phones in the reading room.
RSVPs are required, but you can arrive at any time and stay for as long as you like. RSVP online at: http://osca.rs/WikipediaEdit2016
