Help improve information in Wikipedia about endangered species as part of the Earth Optimism Wikipedia Workshop on Endangered Species hosted by the Smithsonian Libraries (Washington, D.C.) with support from Wikimedia DC.
Drawing on BHL’s free and extensive online collections as source materials, attendees will help to improve information about endangered species in Wikipedia — the third most-visited website in the world in 2019. By including citations to materials in BHL, attendees will provide easy access points for researchers and the public alike to primary data about these species while also helping to raise public awareness about many endangered species, which can be the first step in gaining momentum for conservation activities.
When? Wednesday, 22 April 2020, 1-5pm ET
Where? Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, Washington, D.C.
