Hello!



Multnomah County Library is holding a grand experiment during Open Access
Week <http://www.openaccessweek.org/> (October 22-28): We’re hosting a
Wikipedia Edit-athon.  (Read more about edit-athons
here<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_run_an_edit-a-thon>
.)  We were inspired by an excellent webinar from OCLC earlier this summer,
which is available
here<http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/Librarians_are_Wikipedians_Too.html>,
and have connected with some local Wikipedians to work with us.  Our focus
will be writing and editing current “stubs” related to Multnomah County.



Do you have staff or patrons who might interested in joining us at Central
Library?  I’ve attached a flyer that I’d be pleased if you would post.
