Wikipedia: World War 1 edit-a-thon

Are you interested in Wikipedia or the First World War?

Join us on Tuesday 10th November 2015 when the University of Oxford IT Services are hosting a Wikipedia Editathon on the theme of World War I and Oxford.

WHEN? Tuesday 10 November, 2-5pm
WHERE? IT Services, 13 Banbury Rd, Oxford OX2 6NN

At the event we will learn how to edit existing Wikipedia articles and add new material. We will improve or create Wikipedia articles on World War I topics and highlight the role of Oxford as both a city and a university, in this historical conflict.

Training will be led by Martin Poulter, the Bodleian Libraries’ Wikimedian In Residence.  Expert knowledge about the War or previous Wiki editing experience is NOT necessary, though subject experts and experienced editors are also welcome.

This is a free event, run as part of the University’s centenary activities. Non-University members are welcome. To book a place please visit: (University members) or email (non-University members).
