Did you know Wikipedia’s health information is used by 50-70 percent of all physicians and over 94 percent of med students? Let’s make sure health information Wikipedia articles are reliable! Join your colleagues and NNLM staff for a live editing session on Friday, March 24 from 1-3 PM CT to chat about Wikipedia, edit articles, and connect with the #CiteNLM Wikipedia edit-a-thon community. No prior experience required! NLM_NIH resources such as MedlinePlus and PubMed will be cited. We will be editing articles Wikipedia as identified as needing citations.
For more information on the event see the #CiteNLM Edit-a-thon Resource Guide.
We suggest creating a free Wikipedia user account and joining the #CiteNLM Virtual Edit-a-thon Dashboard before the live event!
