Join us for the #citeNLM2018 Fall Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! On November 7, health professionals, students, and librarians from all over the country will join forces for an all-day edit-a-thon. Participants will edit Wikipedia articles on women’s health topics and improve citations using trusted National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources. During this two-hour drop-in session, librarians from HSHSL and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) will be available for assistance, but you can also participate virtually all day. Please create a Wikipedia account prior to the session or come to the training workshop October 10.
We will cover a variety of basic and advanced imaging informatics topics using Open Source and commercial software. Series topics will alternate between basic and advanced. Students will get hands on applying skills gained through attendance at the workshop. There will also be opportunity for Q&A with presenters on specific questions.
Registration is limited to 25 attendees. All overflow registrants will be added to a waitlist and you will be notified if the session is full.
